Alfred Health Carer Services COVID-19 Update 6 April 2020

Alfred Health Carer Services COVID-19 Update

Dear Carers,

Alfred Health Carer Services remains open. You can phone us for support and respite.

COVID-19 means we need to change the way we work with you and the person you care for. We have paused our face to face services for now.
We will make sure respite we arrange is safe by asking health questions about you, your family and the person you care for.
If you have booked respite and you or someone at home is unwell, call us straight away.  We need to act to keep you and the community as safe as possible.
We are working with respite service providers to ensure that their personal care staff are vigilant about their own and their families’ health.

Stay in Touch
