At Juniper, the well-being and safety of our residents, clients, staff and volunteers is always our priority. We are well prepared for COVID-19 and are confident in managing the virus at our homes, sites and services.

On this page, you will find all Juniper COVID-19 updates and government information as well as links to our media statements. If you are a family member or loved one of a resident at a residential home and there are COVID-19 cases, the nominated representative will be contacted personally by staff at that site.

Juniper COVID-19 Information

Juniper Residential Aged Care – Visiting Requirements

We have implemented precautionary measures to minimise the risk of any of our residents potentially being exposed to COVID-19.

The majority of these rules have been mandated by the WA Government. Click here for more information about WA Government mandates.

Juniper visiting guidelines are as follows:

  • 2 visitors per resident per day.
  • Visitors must continue to stay away if they are unwell or showing any respiratory symptoms.
  • Visitors must wear a mask at all times and practice good hand hygiene.
  • Visitors who have been a ‘close contact’ must not enter the facility within 14 days from their last contact with the person with COVID-19.
  • Visitors must show evidence of a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within the past 24 hours. We encourage all visitors to carry out a RAT before arriving at our aged care homes, however if you cannot access one, Juniper will provide one upon your arrival.
  • If not done already, visitors must provide proof of COVID-19 and Influenza vaccination.

You can also find a copy of the Visitors to Residential Aged Care Directions No 12 here.  As COVID-19 continues to spread through Western Australia, we may need to introduce new precautions to help keep everyone safe. We will notify families and loved ones when these extra measures are to be introduced.

The health and wellbeing of your loved one continues to be our priority. Thank you for your ongoing support during this challenging time.

If you have any questions, please contact your site or service manager.

Home and Community Care

All Home and Community Care staff will wear masks at all times and will utilise a screening tool prior to entering a client’s home.  If you are a client and you have been to an exposure site, please notify your service co-ordinator as soon as possible.

As we have proven in previous times of community transmission, we are well prepared to deal with this situation and we are committed to protecting the health and safety of our residents, clients, staff and volunteers as our highest priority.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, if you have any questions, please contact your site/service manager and check the WA State Government COVID-19 website.
