IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM WOOLGOOLGA AGED CARE CENTRE REGARDING VISITATION

Further to recent communications regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we continue to monitor the developing situation to ensure the appropriate precautionary measures are in place at Woolgoolga & District Retirement Village Ltd incorporating Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre.

Our commitment to our residents is our number one priority. To protect resident's health and wellbeing from the threat of COVID-19, over the past few months we have made a number of difficult decisions around restricted access to Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre and we monitor what is occurring on this front daily. 

As previously advised we recently amended our visiting policy to ensure that people, including children aged 16 and under who meet strict criteria are now able to visit their loved ones. We have also, again under strict criteria enabled residents to leave the aged care centre to attend small family gatherings outside of the village.

Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre advises if you have attended these places or venues or been on the above mentioned flights, buses, taxis, rideshares or trains on these dates or have come into contact with someone that has, you will not be allowed to enter Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre until 14 days after they/you last attended the place, venue, flight, bus or train trip or had contact with the individual who did and are well.

We will continue to update this information as more is advised by NSW Health.

Due to the recent Victorian outbreak of Covid there are now many aged care homes in Victoria and now some in South Western Sydney affected by Covid-19 with many residents testing positive to the virus.  This is a huge reminder to us all to stay vigilant. The threat of Covid-19 is still very alive and as we all know affects the most vulnerable in our community the worst.  We all have an obligation to protect these vulnerable people. 

If you or someone you know has been in the places listed above, please do not attempt to visit the village or ask for residents to visit you.  Please urgently attend your nearest Covid-19 testing centre and get tested then go home and self-isolate until your results come through.  It remains essential that anyone with symptoms, even very mild symptoms, get tested.

As a result of this latest advice we have sent another update to our visiting policy together with a Covid-19 update to our external visitation declaration form to the nominated persons responsible for each resident, and this individual has been asked to share this amongst their loved ones family and friends.

Visits that occur on-site will still occur in the manner they are currently, and we have now introduced additional safety measures inside the village around residents social distancing as this policy now enables residents to leave the village under the conditions contained in the updated visiting policy.

As you know we are 100 percent committed to keeping both residents and our staff safe during the Covid-19 pandemic so we can continue to provide the best and safest services we can to our residents and to those that love them.

We remain extremely concerned that Covid-19 is a particularly virulent virus that is transmitted easily and residents at the centre continue to remain at risk of infection. We implore you to observe the guidelines contained in our policies when visiting residents or having them to visit you.  

We continue to rely on expert advice about how and when to safely lift restrictions in our circumstances.  We also advise that if there are further new local cases of Covid-19 in our region we will immediately instigate tightening of our visitor's policy to ensure resident safety.

We will continue to ensure there is ongoing consultation with residents and their nominated persons responsible about changes to visiting at the village as and when required. 

Woolgoolga & District Retirement Village Ltd will lock-down the aged care centre immediately, if there is a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19 at the village and we will ensure regular communication with residents and persons responsible if this occurs.

Our resident's health remains our priority and we will continue to ensure their needs are fully supported through this difficult time. We will continue to use this website to advise up-to-date information on the evolving situation.

If you have any questions or would like to talk about these arrangements, please contact me on 02 6654 0022 or email me at admin@woolgoolgaretirement.org.au.

Thank you for your continued understanding about all of the precautions being taken by us to keep your loved ones safe.

Chief Executive Officer
