The health and safety of our clients and staff is our highest priority. Our Home and Community Care clients will continue to receive their essential services. Our staff in Perth will wear face masks during their visits and will call clients in advance to ask pre-screening questions before attending their residence.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation to ensure our clients are able to access the care, services and support they need.
In addition, our staff will continue to practice good hand hygiene, reduce unnecessary contact, and adopt other precautions including, for example, wearing a face mask and goggles to protect from cross infection where there are suspected symptoms.
