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

As a company, Country Court has always followed thorough infection control procedures, as we know this is the bedrock to safety. These practices mean we have been as well-equipped as anyone to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak but have still increased our measures to reduce its impact. 

All of our staff have worked extremely hard during this period to keep our residents safe and we have limited the number of cases across all of our homes, far below the national average. While there have been cases in some of our homes, many of these have been isolated and the vast majority of people have recovered to be safe and well.

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.
