Visiting your loved ones
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are asking families to make appointments to visit their loved ones. This enables us to monitor the number of people in our facilities at any one time to ensure we are meeting the requirements as advised by the Federal and State Governments.
Bookings made outside of facility office hours (Mon to Fri 9:00am – 3:00pm) will be actioned the following business day,
