Through the use of technology we are still encouraging ongoing family and friend contact via phone, video calls and email to ensure you can stay closely connected to residents. To book a video call you can use this link or our online messaging system ‘Message Your Loved One’ is another option that can be utilised at any time.
We also encourage everyone to consider getting a flu vaccination as the Government has issued a directive that any individual that has not been vaccinated by 1 May 2020 will not be able to visit any Australian residential aged care facility.
