 June 9th 2020 - Welcome to Alert Level 1!

Warmest greetings, Family and Friends

 

We thank you for your patience and understanding as at long last we celebrate moving into Level 1 together.

 

Please know that we truly appreciate how hard the separation from your loved one has been. We are so happy that now the danger is past and we can safely open our doors again. The closeness and hugs you have missed so much can now be shared with laughter, tears, gratitude for our safety in this wonderful country of ours, and very much love.

 

VISITING AT LEVEL 1

 

All visits continue to be by appointment only. Even in Level 1 it is vital we remain aware of the need for ongoing infection prevention measures due to the vulnerable nature of aged residential care. We are still not certain that COVID has been entirely eliminated in the community.

 

  1. Appointments need to be made in advance with the Clinical Manager or Registered Nurse.

  2. All visitors need to fill out the Visitor Register upon entry to the facility.

  3. Visiting hours are from 10 am to 5 pm daily.

  4. All visitors should perform hand hygiene using soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub upon entry to the facility.

  5. A 14-day symptom-free period will apply before overseas visitors may enter the facility.

 

  1. Leaving the facility is now permitted, with resident/accompanying person encouraged to be responsible for good hygiene practice, and providing the facility with a record of their movements for the purposes of contract tracing upon return.

 

  1. There is no restriction on the number or age of visitors.

 

  1. Please refrain from visiting if you or anyone you are in close contact with has any symptoms of illness.

  2. If a significant number of residents becomes unwell for any reason, our standard outbreak/temporary closure procedures will apply.

 

We welcome you back to your loved one’s home with open arms. We have missed you so much.

 

 

May 13th 2020 - Warmest greetings, Families and Friends, and welcome to Alert Level 2!

 

First and foremost, we would like to thank each and every one of you for the valuable part you have played in helping to keep our home safe over the past few months. We know it has meant a huge sacrifice of your precious time with your loved one. Thank you for this. It is appreciated and so much valued.

 

We are now delighted to let you know that we will be welcoming you back to our home from Thursday 14th May. Once again we ask for your understanding and support in observing the following visiting guidelines, as recommended by the Ministry of Health:

 

  • Please ring us beforehand if you would like to visit: (06) 867 7697
  • Initial screening needs to be completed by our Clinical Manager, available Monday-Friday 8.30-4.30. Please be aware of the need for pre-planning if you intend to visit over the weekend
  • Visiting hours will be 9.30-11.30 a.m. daily
  • To accommodate all loved ones wishing to visit, we ask you to restrict visits to 30 minutes
  • Only one visitor per resident will be allowed at a time, and unfortunately it will not be possible for children to visit at the moment
  • In addition to the above, all visitors will be screened by our clinical team on each visit. Please be patient with this important process
  • We remind you that after that long-awaited hug the Ministry recommends that we maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from all people not in our immediate ‘home bubble’
  • If anyone in your immediate home bubble is feeling even slightly unwell, please refrain from visiting until you are all at least 48 hours symptom-free
  • Please only visit and interact with your own loved one, and keep a social distance of 2 metres from others at all times. Our staff will be available to assist with this if needed.
  • All visitors will be asked to:

 

    1. wear a mask (which we will provide), in line with Ministry guidelines
    2. perform hand hygiene

 

  • We ask that you refrain from taking your loved one out into the wider community for the new few weeks.

 

Welcome home. It will be lovely to see you again and see the smiles and happiness that greet your arrival.
