We provide exceptional aged care in an intimate community that feels like home.
We are writing to you in relation to COVID-19 vaccinations. The federal government mandated COVID vaccines in all aged care workers by 17th September and we are proud to report that we have 100% vaccination of all our staff. This includes nurses, carers, cleaners, kitchen, and laundry staff. We even have our maintenance and gardening teams vaccinated as our commitment to the ‘no jab, no job’ mandate. We are grateful to our teams, but now it’s your turn…
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services have issued a statement today declaring that Greater Brisbane will be designated a red zone under Victoria’s travel permit system from 6.00pm.
This means that anyone who has entered Victoria from Greater Brisbane must immediately self-quarantine, get a coronavirus test and remain isolated for 14 days from the day you entered Victoria.
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.
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.
