Kính gửi Quý Vị Thân nhân cư trú viên
V/v: Cập nhật thông tin

Theo thông báo của Chính Phủ tiểu bang Victoria ra ngày hôm nay 26/2/2021 sẽ không còn hạn chế về số lượng khách viếng. Cho đến khi chúng tôi nhận được hướng dẫn mới từ chính phủ, việc kiểm tra nhiệt độ, mẫu kê khai của khách viếng và việc giữ khoảng cách khi giao tiếp là 1.5 mét vẫn được duy trì. Số lượng khách viếng trong phòng cư trú viên (2 người mỗi lượt thăm) vẫn được áp dụng. Tương tự, cho đến khi yêu cầu về việc kiểm tra nhiệt độ & điền vào mẫu kê khai của khách viếng được Chính phủ hủy bỏ, chúng tôi vẫn yêu cầu Quý vị nên báo trước với văn phòng hành chánh về các cuộc viếng thăm thân nhân của mình. Sau 6.00 giờ chiều, chúng tôi yêu cầu Quý vị nên liên lạc với người thân thông qua Viber hoặc Face Time.

Dear residents & relatives,

Due to the recent one case of community transmission from a Melbourne Hotel we will include the list of exposure site in our screening for visitors.

If there is an increase in community transmission, we will review our screening procedures for residents returning from home visits and advise you of the change before return to the facility. IERA also resumed fortnightly testing of staff in January.

There are no additional changes to current government restrictions on visits, however you will be updated if further restrictions are applied. Surgical masks, declarations, symptom checks and hand sanitation and bookings still apply. We thank you for your cooperation.

Regards
Denis Jones – Director

Dear Residents Relatives

Re: Information update

The Victorian Government on December 31, 2020 has reviewed restrictions and there are now in place temporary limits on the purpose of visits, the number of visitors and the length of the visit to care facilities.

The following restrictions now apply where care cannot reasonably be provided by that person via electronic or other non-contact means:

  • Access to 1 visitor at any time, once per day.
  • Essential care persons: 1 visitor, no time limits apply
  • Essential behaviour assistance person: no time limits apply
  • Interpreters or informal language support: no time limits apply
  • Visitor is being assisted to handover care for discharge
  • Visitor is viewing facility as a potential site to live in
  • End of life: 2 visitors, no time limit.

Visiting to a resident’s room still requires social distancing of 1.5 metres at all times and the wearing of a surgical face mask. Density limits in communal visitor-resident zones remain unchanged.

Visiting hours remains as 9.15am – 4.15pm Monday – Friday, every Wednesday evening and Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Extra staff time has been allocated to conduct screening on Wednesdays and weekends. Screening and visitor declarations remain unchanged.

Regards
David Rapoport – Care Manager

A COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY

RESIDENTIAL CARE

Residential Care provides accommodation, support and personal care for people who can no longer live safely at home. Elderly can live independently in low level (hostel) care, but get help with meals and laundry, and personal care like dressing…

SOCIAL SUPPORT

The major goal of the PAG is to support an individual’s ability to live at home and in the community by providing a planned program of activities. The program also offers the opportunity for social interaction as well as respite and support for carers.

Honouring those who carried this work ahead of us…

We pay our respects to those who have worked to improve the health and well being of their peers. We honour people and organisations in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people’s bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent. Thank you for having the courage to be yourself and to strive for health across the lifespan.
