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

It is important that all those entering care homes, including those who are exempt from vaccination, continue to follow infection prevention and control measures, including the correct usage of PPE, to reduce the risk of transmission.

However, these measures are not a substitution for the requirement for individuals to be fully vaccinated, which applies to all persons entering a care home unless exempt.

Individuals entering a care home only need to demonstrate vaccination status on the first occasion they enter or register, and the registered person should record their status on the care home’s local system (for example IT system, paper file and so on)

A risk assessment should be undertaken for those who are exempt from vaccination, to reduce risk of transmission. This might include a change to their duties where such a change is appropriate. It should also be taken into account that those that are exempt from vaccination may also be in the clinically extremely vulnerable category.

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.
Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) - Regulator’s Assessment

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