Aged Care Residences – Mornington & Capel Sound
Village Glen has implemented visitor screening processes at our aged care residences as part of our response to COVID-19 to protect everyone in our community. We encourage all visitors to stay away if at all unwell. We can organise alternative ways for visitors to stay in touch when not able to physically be on site through our Virtual Visiting program. Please contact your Clinical Campus Manager to arrange.
Residents who have chosen to the have the vaccine have done so through the federal vaccination phase 1a program held recently at both Capel Sound and Mornington campuses.
Staff continue to practice strict infection prevention and control processes including the wearing of face masks. Staff also participate in regular voluntary asymptomatic testing and have been provided with vaccine information to promote uptake.
Retirement Living & Flexicare Home Support
We continue to provide information and support services to all our residents and clients regarding the pandemic as required. We have organised an on-site vaccination day for residents residing in the retirement village and continue to support residents through this process where necessary.
