Part of a peaceful residential area just outside Grimsby, Brooklands is a purpose-built, 60-bed care home offering residential, nursing and memory care, for those living with dementia, as well as care for young people with physical disabilities.

This friendly home offers the choice of three sitting rooms and three dining areas. There is also a coffee shop, a hairdressing salon and treatment room, a dedicated activities room and a sunny conservatory. The lovely garden, which is looked after by some of our Residents, is a favourite location in which to relax or socialise with friends and relatives. All our bright and comfortable bedrooms and living areas are easily accessible by wheelchair.

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've taken the appropriate measures to ensure the safety of residents.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
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.

Activities Are So Important

Here at Brooklands Care Home, we have a dedicated activities coordinator responsible for creating a monthly activities calendar. We Care Group provides the activities coordinators with all the tools necessary to enhance the well-being of our Residents.

As we have residents with dementia, it is crucial to have daily activities that help keep their minds sharp. We focus on the sensory stimulation for our residents, which means we have activities that stimulate their senses (taste, smell, vision, hearing and touch)

Besides the wide range of sensory stimulation and activities, each Home has a 40 inches interactive table. In the past year, WCG invested in getting a Sharp Interactive table to each Home to aid the activities coordinators to provide a more person-centred and one-on-one session to low mobility Residents or Residents who prefer not to socialise.

In Brooklands Care Home, we believe in helping enrich the lives of people with dementia to ensure they are happy and fulfilled.
