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 Enhanced Infection Control Pledge means that you can be confident that every Hamberley Care Home is a safe and protected environment.

Alston House has been designed with the highest safety standards in mind, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Within our luxury care home you will find a bespoke, BBC featured COVID secure visitation suite, in built thermal imaging technology in the entrance lobby to ensure all visitors to the home, including staff have their temperature taken, and a ventilation system which ensures air in public spaces is fully replaced four times an hour. The home also has hand washing and hand sanitising stations throughout for staff, residents and visitors.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space

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

Happiness and harmony are at the heart of our home life, and at Alston House we will have a dedicated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach to ensure that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for residents and staff alike.

We advocate activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing, but we don't believe in waiting for an Activities Coordinators to organise them. Our Homemakers support our residents to continue with their hobbies or pursue new leisure activities, when they want to, and not as part of a set timetable.
