Meet The Manager

Lisa Astley is The Home Manager at Bridgewater Manor.

I have been a qualified nurse since 1992 and been managing care homes for 15 years. I have a passion for excellent care and making a difference to peoples lives. This is why I had been waiting over a year for a Home Manager vacancy to join a company such as Newcare that shares my values.

Lisa Astley

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

All New Care homes are open to new admissions and we are now conducting on site e visits for those looking for care. These visits will be subject to a negative Lateral Flow test and will carefully managed to maintain the safety of our residents and staff. Please contact the home for further information.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our Residents and Staff are always our top priorities. We have in place robust and comprehensive contingency plans to respond to the coronavirus outbreak. Our plans will be kept under regular review and updated as advised by the Public health.

We are continuing to follow the most up to date guidance around swabbing. As of 16th February 2022 staff will take a LFT at the beginning of each shift and residents will take a PCR monthly. If a staff member was to test positive they are sent home to isolate, during this period of isolation they remain on full pay. If a residents tests positive they will be fully supported and all care will be offered in their own bedrooms. Immediate family members will be kept fully informed and encouraged to stay in touch through video links.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
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.

Deputy Manager

I qualified as a mental health nurse in 2017. Since then I worked in NHS then returned to the Private care home sector in 2019, where I was promoted to deputy manager. I have a passion for working in elderly care and prior to qualifying as a nurse I was a care assistant caring for residents living with dementia. I am young, enthusiastic and career driven. I aim to deliver the highest quality of care and compassion to my residents. Since joining New Care in January I already feel part of the family and I am looking forward to progressing my career, with the support of management and senior management.
