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

Safety Measures
Hand hygiene is crucial in stopping the spread of the virus, and each of our homes has had a hand washing station installed at the entrance, for everyone to use as they arrive at the home.

In addition to our normal cleaning regimes, we have introduced extra cleaning schedules for our housekeeping teams, using products that are effective against coronavirus.

Visiting Opportunities

To keep residents, staff and visitors safe, we encourage all visitors to take a lateral flow test before each visit, and to strictly follow the guidance on hand washing and wearing a mask whilst in the home. Whilst mask wearing is no longer necessary when visiting the resident in their room you should continue to wear a face covering when walking through the home or visiting in communal areas.

Infection Control Initiatives in place

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

We have something for everyone, whether they want to indulge in a life-long hobby with new friends or learn a completely new skill – it’s never too late to embrace something! We believe in focusing on what our residents can do, rather than what they can do, so our activities are not obligatory, but we do encourage all of our residents to take part for their mental and physical health and wellbeing.
