Update on our response to COVID-19
As part of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Centacare continues to monitor the development of COVID-19. We continue to follow advice from public health authorities and are taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to support the safety, health and wellbeing of our clients, employees and volunteers.
As the situation develops we will continue to update all clients, families and stakeholders of changes to our operations.
COVID-19 Update 5 – Community access for SIL clients
5 May 2020
In line with the easing of some government restrictions, we can now support clients living in our Supported Independent Living (SIL) services to access certain activities and outings in the community. Support workers can accompany clients to go to the park, go for a walk, have a picnic and shop for non-essential items. In addition, SIL clients will be able to receive visits from two family members at one time. Read more about the changes here.
COVID-19 Update 4 – Support available for aged care clients during COVID-19
24 April 2020
We understand that older Australians, and those with existing health conditions, are feeling particularly vulnerable due to the impact of COVID-19. Centacare remains open for business, to ensure our aged care clients receive all the support they need to live well and independently in their own homes. Read more about all the ways we can support you during this time here.
