More ‘Garden Pods’ for Outdoor Family Visits
In another step by Avery Healthcare to help relative visiting during the pandemic, the Group has invested in more outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’ to be installed at a rate of three care homes per week to complete the portfolio.
The pods, installed by Wild Environments, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.
The next three pods will be installed at Spencer House, Cliftonville and Hinckley House, with all other Avery care homes following suit in the coming months.
