Residential Home Windsor Celebrates New Year

With the heralding of the new year, Jewish Care is thrilled to announce to our community that the lockdown has been declared over and we now move to a status of enhanced surveillance.

"While some restrictions must remain in place, this new status means that elders are again free to move about their individual houses and importantly are able to enjoy meals together the first of which was a very special Rosh Hashana meal together today", said Chief Executive Officer Bill Appleby.

"We understand that this has been a very distressing and challenging time for elders, their families and our staff. We have and will continue to work tirelessly to so far as is possible ensure the safety and wellbeing of our elders and staff." said Bill Appleby.

"The overwhelming support we have received has been a wonderful motivator and we cannot express enough how grateful we are to our local heroes, our dedicated staff and leadership team for their tireless commitment, resilience, and compassion to those we support – it’s been a very long 48 days in lockdown", said Bill Appleby.

"Additionally, the Board and leadership team of Jewish Care would like to publicly express our gratitude to Alfred Health, Ramsay Health Care, Melbourne Pathology Service, the Department of Health & Human Services, the Commonwealth Department of Health, and the respective General Practitioners who have worked collaboratively and proactively in assisting us to support the wellbeing of our elders over these 7 weeks", said Bill Appleby.
