Juniper Home and Community Care COVID-19 Response Update

Bethanie D’Amico, Juniper’s General Manager Home and Community Care recently provided an update to all Juniper’s Home and Community Care clients, expressing gratitude and acknowledgement to clients, families, and carers for the efforts in keeping each other safe during these unprecedented times of COVID-19.

The update highlighted:

  • No Juniper client, resident, volunteer or staff member has tested positive to COVID-19
  • Clients were encouraged to:
    • Continue to be highly vigilant with good hand hygiene practices, cough and sneeze etiquette and maintaining physical distancing protocols;
    • Monitor their health for signs of cold and flu; and
    • Complete Juniper’s health screenings.
  • Any clients with questions should reach out to their Client Care Advisor.

Consumer Surveys for Home Care Clients:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Government, through the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, is conducting consumer surveys with clients of home and community care providers, such as Juniper.

The aim of the survey is to review the actions providers have taken to keep their clients safe and informed during this time. Some clients of Juniper may be contacted by the Commission and asked if they would like to participate.

More information about the survey can be found on the Commission’s website www.agedcarequality.gov.au or by contacting the Commission on 1800 951 822, and press option 2.
