Scholars Mews Care Home, Stratford-Upon-Avon
Sharon very kindly invited us to the Grand Opening of their new Visitor Pod where we cut the ribbon and enjoyed some specially made cakes with the lovely residents! Violet, a resident and her visiting son, Steven, were the first to try out the pod and gave a big thumbs up.
A Visitor Pod for Scholars Mews Care Home, Stratford-upon-Avon.
The effects of COVID-19 means that during 2020 care homes needed to look at ways that they could reunite residents with family and friends in an outside area separate from the main care home for optimum safety. Wild Environments designed a Visitor Pod with two separate entrances, an airtight partition screen and a speech transfer system which means care homes could have total confidence when residents and loved ones met.
One of our first care homes to benefit was Scholars Mews Manager, Sharon Wassing from the national care home group Avery Healthcare. Sharon said, “This is so exciting for us, after months of lockdowns and no good news we have a reason to be excited. You have no idea how this will improve residents’ lives with visits being able to take place in all weathers without putting the Home and residents and staff at risk.”
Sharon goes on to say, “We have decided after COVID 19 it is going to be a Theme Pod. Great winter décor and residents will be able to sit and watch the snow come down and staff building snowmen, fairy lights to cheer up the dark evenings. It is going to be amazing.”
Since the Visitor Pod has been installed, Scholars Mews has been able to book around four one hour visits each day for residents and their families and told Wild Environments, “The Visitor Pod is a great success. We decided to go down this route as the design was very aesthetically pleasing and could easily double as lovely Summer House when COVID 19 decides to leave us or at least join the winter flu group. What was important to us was being able to offer our residents and relatives somewhere that they could meet in private without masks covering their mouths, particularly as some of our residents do lip read to aid their understanding. The whole impact is life changing.”
Wild Environments gained Avery Healthcare’s trust and have since been asked to build and install a Visitor Pod for every one of their care homes across England! We have been installing these at a rate of three per week since December in order to bring residents and their loved ones together as soon as possible.
