A message from the CEO to residents family & visitors prior to Easter:
The Peninsula Villages Board of Directors and our Risk & Compliance Management Committee have met and wish to stress to all visitors the parameters that are in place for visitation to Peninsula Villages.
Visiting for 1 hour ONLY.
These are regulations set by the Australian Government and not the facility. We would like to emphasise at this point that social visits are not considered to be essential under the current Department of Health guidelines. With Easter approaching we are asking for your assistance in following the guidelines and to keep visiting to a minimum and within our restrictions.
We are all being asked to remain at home this Easter and not to travel unless it is necessary and to avoid all unnecessary contact. Our staff are making considerable sacrifices by following these guidelines to provide the safest possible environment for our residents and we are asking for your support to do the same.
The Board wishes to convey that Peninsula Village is one of only a few facilities that are still open and allowing visitation, as we strongly believe social interaction is important to your loved one.
Should anyone breach these rules in the lead up or over the Easter break, the facility will be forced to close its doors to everyone and will remain closed until the COVID-19 crisis has ended.
