NSW Heath has issued Residential Aged Care providers with a directive today to stop visitors from entering aged care facilities, effective immediately,  unless there are exceptional circumstances.  Exceptional circumstances, as defined by NSW Health, include compassionate grounds (for example residents receiving palliative care) or if a visitor provides essential care to a resident. 

We will be writing a newsletter to families and residents tomorrow with further information, including on how you can remain in contact with your loved ones during the visiting restrictions.

Thank you for your support and patience during these restrictions.
