Crossways was originally built as a private house but has been substantially extended and was refurbished in 2016 to accommodate 27 residents requiring Nursing Care.

The Home comprises 23 single bedrooms and 2 shared rooms, some of which have en-suite facilities.

There is a large lounge that has an adjacent quiet area and a second sitting room/dining room for residents, their families and friends to enjoy.

We use the smaller lounge for group interactive activities and it has direct access to our large, attractive, well maintained and established garden with a gazebo and a covered patio for our residents to enjoy when the sun is shining. We often have afternoon tea in the gardens.

The gardens to the rear of Crossways overlook open countryside and there is ample car parking in the grounds.

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.

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.
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.
