Immediate changes to visitation from today as directed by DHHS

January 1, 2021

It is not the way we wanted to start 2021, however, it is important that we implement the new directives sent to us by DHHS in relation to visitation to all Aged Care homes.  From today at both Embracia Reservoir and Embracia Moonee Valley, we will revert back to 1 person visiting, once a day and for a maximum of 2 hours.  Residents receiving end of life care are excluded from these rules and we encourage you to have regular conversations with our management teams regarding your visiting rights.  We apologise for any inconvenience, but we must put our resident’s safety first.

We need your support to keep us COVID safe

December 31, 2020

We want to start by wishing each of you a happy new year and thank you for your ongoing support throughout 2020, but it’s not over yet… In light of the recent NSW clusters and now Victoria having new community COVID-19 cases, we need your help more than ever.  Please DO NOT visit either Embracia Reservoir or Embracia Moonee Valley if you have been in Greater Sydney, Northern Beaches, Blue Mountains, Wollongong or now the 3 new areas in Victoria; Mitcham, Mentone or Hallam.  If you have been to any of these areas or any of the listed locations on DHHS website, then please do the right thing and stay away from our homes for 14 days and get tested.  We need your support to keep our residents and staff safe and to ensure we do not face any more lockdowns, 2020 was hard enough and we want 2021 to be a COVID safe and COVID free new year.  Staying away helps keep our people safe, so please play your part.

Visitation can start tomorrow for everyone besides Winx

October 9, 2020

We are over the moon to announce you can visit your loved one from tomorrow, following the directives below!  Yes, following our continued work and communication with Dr Wong and the team at Public Health Unit (PHU), today they provided us with clearance for all households including Northerly residents who are returning from Winx now that they have been cleared to have daily visitation from their loved ones!  We have one resident who will remain in Winx with one on one care until they return their second negative test and can be then cleared to relocate back to Northerly too.  They have already returned one negative test and today they were swabbed for their second test, so we hope if that test is negative, tomorrow they too will be cleared and can return to Northerly and have visitation from their loved one.  It truly feels like FriYAY today with this news!
