Keeping our residents and team safe 

Auburn Mere is a small, independent, family run residential home in the heart of your community. We have worked hard during the pandemic to develop a COVID safe environment, and look forward to welcoming new people to the home. 

Some of our safety policies and measures include:

  • The team and visitors wear appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and we have a good supply of six weeks in stock

  • 30 minute COVID-19 testing for visitors for Close Contact Visits 

  • Regular COVID-19 testing - 3 times a week for the team and every 28 days for the residents 

  • The team are trained in Infection Control and Covid-19, as well as completing a monthly training schedule. We also attend regular webinars about testing, vaccines and updated guidance

  • Social distancing has become a necessary measure followed by the residents and the team. We have areas in the home where residents can meet safely and enjoy activities whilst social distancing

  • Auburn Mere takes pride in the cleanliness of the home and we have increased our cleaning procedures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 

  • Visitors are always welcome, however due to COVID-19 visits are by appointment only and facilitated in our brand new visiting pod

  • We are happy to welcome new residents to the home and have created a safe and robust admission process
