New Lockdown for Victoria and what this means for Aged Care

February 12, 2021

Dear Residents and Families,

Re: New Lockdown for Victoria and what this means for Aged Care

You have probably heard the new strict and severe lockdown coming into effect for all of Victoria from 11.59pm tonight for hopefully only 5 days. Unfortunately, this does feel like DeJa’Vu for all of us Victorians, however, it is important that we inform you of the rules we must all comply with for both Embracia Reservoir and Embracia Moonee Valley. The important things you need to know from 11.59pm tonight:

  • No visitors are allowed into Aged Care homes from tonight.
  • Families and friends of anyone who is deemed to be receiving end of life care is permitted to visit, so please make direct communication with Catrina and Ariella at Embracia Reservoir and Cam and Joy at Embracia Moonee Valley.
  • We will continue to keep you informed as more information or any changes come our way, so please keep checking your emails, as well as our website, Facebook, and Instagram.
  • Keeping connected to your loved ones is so important, so we will be offering electronic catch ups using our iPads and tablets.
  • Please email and make a booking for a zoom or FaceTime call and our Lifestyle team will assist your loved one to use one of our many electronic tablets.  Appointments are required, so please email you requests to our lifestyle team at your home:
    • Moonee Valley – lifestylemv@embraciavic.com.au
    • Reservoir – lifestyleC@embraciavic.com.au

Thank you again for working with us and for your ongoing support.

Take care and stay safe.

Kind regards,

Sarah MacKenzie
Managing Director

Damien Lippiatt
General Manager

 

We provide exceptional aged care in an intimate community that feels like home.
