Caring SA safety measures
Dear families, friends and advocates
Today I am writing to you about the continued efforts to support our clients and staff as COVID-19 continues to impact our community.
CaringSA clients, support workers and staff have been at the front line of the COVID-19 outbreak here in SA.Many disability providers in SA have experienced outbreaks and CaringSA is at the fore-front in infection control and outbreak management.
Since our last report CaringSA has been working with both clients and staff to manage the impact due to COVID.A number of clients and over 80 staff have been infected by COVID in recent months and we can report that all have recovered well.
CaringSA has been able to continue supports for clients during this time and we are continuing to maintain infection control protocols such as:
Fully vaccinated staff
Masks wearing by staff in all SIL homes
Increased house cleaning
Reminders around hand sanitation, social distancing & staying away from high traffic areas
There are some opportunities emerging for clients to receive a 4th vaccination in their home as well as a potential 4th dose for the wider community. If this occurs LDS will endeavor to run another clinic at our Payneham Head Office.
Thank you to our community for your ongoing support.
If you have any immediate questions, please contact your SCSM or Team Leader.
