Our brand new care home in Droitwich opened in October 2020. Once the site of the Spring Meadow pub, the purpose-built home provides residential, dementia and respite care in a warm and cosy environment.

The team at Droitwich Mews greet residents with a heartwarming smile every day and fill the halls with laughter. Our commitment to forming a close bond with residents and making our care home community feel like a family is why we’re one of the best care homes in Worcestershire.

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 are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

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.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Not all our vegetables can be taken from our garden, but Chef is always casting his eye over our beds to see what is available. After all you can’t get much fresher than that. But if not from the garden, then the vegetables and all our food, ice cream excepted perhaps, is as fresh as it can be, sourced locally and cooked in our kitchen.

Food and dining is a critical part of life at Droitwich Mew's and we think that our dining experience matches that of any good restaurant. You’ll find all the traditional favourites on the menu, but the more exotic such as curries and goulashes as well. At mealtimes the room is filled with happy chatter and guests are quite welcome to join us. Come for an aperitif or glass of wine!

When the weather permits, we love a nice cuppa in the garden with some of Chef’s freshly baked cakes and pastries. Healthy savoury snacks and fruit are always on offer through the day as well.

Food is such an important part of life and moving into a home shouldn’t mean being served the same bland food day in day out. Our award-winning chefs put together a delicious and varied menu that’s nutritious and meets our residents’ dietary and cultural needs.

Residents can choose from traditional to exotic meals and maybe even find a few new favourites. Meals are served in the communal or private dining room with beautiful crockery and table service — it’s like eating out every day! Of course, for residents who prefer a little privacy, we’ll serve them in their room with the same care and attention to detail.

Guests are welcome to join us at our cafes, and we can arrange private get-togethers to celebrate special occasions with friends and family.

Activities Are So Important

No one knows what residents at Droitwich Mews enjoy doing like the residents themselves. That’s why the wellbeing team let them take the lead when it comes to activities, whether that’s playing bridge, or exploring local landmarks like Chateau Impney, Stratford Butterfly Farm or Norbury Theatre.
The home also has its own minibus ready to take residents for tea at The Button Tree, for some exercise as Droitwich Lido, or to combine the 2 at Hadley Bowling Green.
Our care home is just a few miles away from the train station and off the A38, making it easy for family and friends to visit. And with so many facilities to enjoy with their loved ones, we’re never short of visitors.
