Dear Families and Carers,
As of yesterday, Sunday August 2nd Premier Daniel Andrews announced a state of disaster for Victoria where stage 4 restrictions were implemented for Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire.
At SJG Accord the health and safety of our clients and caregivers is paramount to how we provide our services. We have implemented procedures across the organisation since early March and will continue to remain vigilant in how we support our clients.
St John of God Health Care our parent organisation has again provided expertise to us and continues to be a valuable resource in continuing to manage the risk of COVID-19 in our services. Our caregivers have undertaken infection control training, have access to PPE and are vigilant in conducting frequent cleaning regimes in all our settings.
We have adapted to the changing environment of COVID-19 very quickly, and we are aware of the emotional disruption this have caused many of our clients, their families and our caregivers.
We daily continue to monitor the communications from State government and if you have any questions please call us on 1300 002 226 or email Accord.CEO@sjog.org.au
Lisa Evans CEO, St John of God Accord
