The Care Centre is found in the small village of Ditton Priors, just a few miles from the Shropshire town of Bridgnorth. Ditton Priors Care Centre boasts stunning gardens, patio areas, colourful flower beds and uninterrupted views over the scenic Shropshire countryside, providing residents with an idyllic, peaceful setting. Group activities are commonplace at Ditton Priors, and residents can take part in the regular events, from musician visits and entertainment to trips and outings. For residents who prefer the quieter life, there are dedicated relaxation areas where they can pursue their own hobbies at their own pace. Further facilities include a chiropodist, dentist, hairdresser and church visits. The Care Centre has its own minibus, too. Other local points of interest include Bridgnorth Castle and Old Mill Antiques Centre.

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

Our staff and residents have all been offered the vaccine. Our staff follow the latest guidelines regarding PPE and social distancing to minimise risk.

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.

Activities Are So Important

Group activities are commonplace at Ditton Priors, and residents can take part in the regular events, from musician visits and entertainment to trips and outings. For residents who prefer the quieter life, there are dedicated relaxation areas where they can pursue their own hobbies at their own pace.

We offer a range of activities in our homes from craft to seated exercise. Each home has an activities co-ordinator, who decides on the timetable. Carers are encouraged to run activities for the residents so the activities vary depending upon the hobbies and interests. External providers are also encouraged (COVID allowing) to run activities in the home.
