 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.
