18 September (3.00pm)

Jewish Care Victoria continues to do everything possible under very challenging circumstances to manage the situation at our Residential Home in Windsor, where we had a significant number of diagnosed elders and staff.

There are now just 2 active staff cases.

Testing occurred Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 September 2020 for elders and staff. Results received have all been returned negative

Strict lockdown protocols are to be maintained under the direction of DHHS Public Health Unit.

All elders are well and displaying no signs and symptoms of the virus and they continue to receive care from our staff with clinical oversight from our Clinical Care Coordinator, their GPs and Alfred Health in-reach services.

We will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah in a special albeit different way. Volunteers have assisted to pack individual Rosh Hashanah gift packs for our elders and clients of our disability services.

We continue to work with the Department of Health & Human Services, Alfred Health and the Commonwealth Department of Health to support the wellbeing of our elders and staff and are adhering to directives by the State and Federal authorities.

Families are being kept up to date regarding their loved ones conditions. Families are reminded to use the dedicated call centre: 8517 5556 or [email protected]

We wish all our Elders, clients and staff a happy, healthy and sweet start to the New Year.
