COVID-19 Vaccinations for all staff and volunteers.
Benevolent Living has joined the 100% employee vaccination club!
Congratulations to all of our employees at the Benevolent for receiving their first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination and for doing their part to protect themselves, their families, our community and the vulnerable people in our care!
Currently the 98.5% of aged care workers across the country have been vaccinated. These rates are higher than those across the community and reflects the determination of staff and administrators to keep our residents staff.
Management would also like to take the time to thank our residents and their families for understanding the importance of receiving the vaccination themselves and doing their part for the safety of our community.
The majority of our residents have also chosen to be vaccinated and we also strongly encourage family members and visitors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
For more information on the vaccine please visit here.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Benevolent Living wants to make seeing your loved one as easy as possible and trust that all visitors will do the right thing. If visitors are found to be in breach of our visiting guidelines they may be asked to exclude themselves from the community. Furthermore, if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Benevolent Living our visiting guidelines will be reviewed and that will be communicated with families.
