We offer apartments that are smart, comfortable, light and secure. Great for socialising in, but just as good for relaxing in too. Our 2-bedroom apartments offers the additional bedroom space to welcome a visitor or friend. Invariably these second rooms are being used by some residents as hobby rooms for what is fast becoming a wide repertoire of interests from puzzles to painting, arts and craft through to knitting and sewing.

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.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
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.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

We’ve created a bio-secure room so family and friend visits can continue. We’ve installed a perspex screen from wall to wall and ceiling to floor, so visitors can be one side and residents safely on the other. It means there’s no limit to how many visits or different people you can have. We hope to remove that awful ‘cut off’ feeling entirely.

Description

Moving from a large family home to something easier to manage raises dozens of questions and triggers waves of emotions. The practical side of our brain tells us the earlier we do it, the better we are – physically, socially and financially.

Yet, understandably it’s not a task anyone undertakes lightly or instantly. So, you will be glad to know we have a warm and compassionate team here who can help you with your questions and explore what’s important – at your own pace.
