Meet The Manager

Beverley Murrain is Home Manager at Clare Court Care Home.

Clare Court is a Birmingham care home that offers residential, dementia and nursing care in a diverse resident community that is as culturally diverse as the Birmingham neighbourhoods which it serves.

Just half a mile from Birmingham City Hospital, Clare Court delivers exceptional care and support delivered through a diverse group of trained staff, who celebrate the lives of each resident and ensure their continued well-being in what is a fun and companionable setting. We draw residents and care staff from towns such as Sandwell, Handsworth, Ladywood, Bearwood and Smethwick and spend much time visiting clubs and organisations in these areas, or just enjoying a spot of shopping and a meal out.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

We are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Clare Court our food is always freshly prepared every day, using local suppliers and is in tune with the seasons, where possible. All our meals are nutritionally balanced as well as being fresh and appetising, and we put on quite a spread with Carribean, Asian and European dishes all available. We are also well used to catering for any special dietary requirements either for faith or health reasons.  Our Chef team pride themselves on keeping a note of residents’ specific likes and dislikes and are well acquainted with all the traditional favourites.

Dining is an integral part of life in our Birmingham care home. There are dining rooms on each floor where residents can enjoy each other’s company, and we also have a beautiful private dining area where friends and family can gather with their loved ones. As well as three delicious meals served daily, residents can indulge in a selection of freshly baked cakes, chocolate treats and savoury snacks throughout the day. And for those special occasions, our chef and team are sure to provide a homemade cake.

Activities Are So Important

It’s true that a smile makes all the difference and there’s no shortage of smiling at our nursing home with our Well-Being Coordinators dreaming all manner of activities that help each and every one of residents achieve an active and balanced lifestyle. From baking to bingo, arts and crafts to enjoying the company of dogs, we have something for every resident to enjoy, whatever their interests or abilities. Reminiscence is also a big part of everyday life at our home, either with one-to-one sessions or in a group activity. Our nominated Resident of the Day programme, and regular Skype sessions keeps people feeling special and in touch with the world around them.

Being part of our local Birmingham community is an important part of a fulfilled and rounded life, so we make sure to get out and about and regularly visit local venues, such as our nearby Community Club, the park, and the pub for lunch. We love the buzz of Dudley Road, with its rich variety of independent shops and we often walk down to it and enjoy a light lunch or a drink together.

Entertainers, local groups, school children and plenty of pets through the PAT scheme (Pets as Therapy) come to see us too. Life is varied and companionable at our Birmingham nursing home, just watch our videos below that capture some recent occasions.

A range of outside speakers from local interest groups attend Clare Court to deliver talks that reflects the rich cultural mix of our residents. As part of the Avery Re-Connect Programme, we are developing the use of afternoon poetry sessions, utilising audio books and local artists to deliver poetry in a variety of dialects from Welsh and ‘Brummie’ to Patois. Local poets such as Ita Gooden from the Caribbean community, have been recent visitors to the home to support our work.
