Building relationships that make the difference

COVID-19 update: 18 June 2020

COVID-19 update: 18 June 2020

Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding as we recover and respond to the community changes.  Although there is currently limited community transmission in Perth, we must remain vigilant and ensure the care of the vulnerable people as we head into cold and flu season.

The WA Government has release the follow reference documents for community based care which the management team is using to guide our practices until advised otherwise.

Personal Protective Equipment is only advised when in close contact with a symptomatic person.  It is considered the last line of defence and may not be appropriate in all cases of support.  The preferred approach, for individuals and staff alike, is to stay home if unwell, get COVID tested and wait until symptoms have eased.

Please continue your open communication with your coordinators.  I encourage you to contact me, or a member of the management team, if you have any queries or uncertainties.
