Update 26 May 2020
AgeWell Centres to continue delivering modified services.
The past few months have certainly been very challenging for the community as we collectively navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the precautionary measures in place to keep us all safe. It’s been a monumental adjustment for everyone.
Our aim during this time has been to continue providing our allied health, social support and carer respite clients with the services and supports they need to maintain their independence and wellbeing at home, albeit in a different way.
While some of the COVID-19 isolation restrictions are slowly being eased by Government, the risk is still present and we must all remain vigilant. The health advice remains for those who are more vulnerable due to age or health concerns – stay at home to stay safe. As a result, Uniting AgeWell will continue to provide services on an individual basis throughout June.
We know that many people are missing their usual centre-based and group activities and we hope to recommence these programs on Wednesday, 15 July 2020 in a carefully staged way to ensure social distancing and safety requirements can be met.
In the meantime, we will continue to work with you to deliver any services that assist you to remain independent at home; and we will keep you informed of any changes to timeframes for modified services in line with government and public health advice.
