Visitor access is now limited at all mecwacare aged care facilities – in line with the current Victorian Government’s five-day lockdown across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The lockdown commenced at 11.59pm Thursday July 15.

This means no in-room visits, outdoor garden visits and no outings into the community.

Essential visits for palliative care (imminent) (two visitors at any one time, with no daily limit or time limit) and special needs i.e. to support a new resident (two hours per day, one visitor) will remain available. PPE (face masks, clear face shields and gloves) will be required for these visits.

We will continue to support residents with video calls using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime and phone calls. These need to be booked online 24 hours in advance using the booking link below. Note: these calls may be limited to 15 minutes depending on demand.

Book a visit

As we did for the previous lockdown in May, mecwacare has enacted its emergency COVID-19 management plan. Our staff have resumed wearing clear face shields, as well as face masks and gloves for added protection.

For the next five days, there will be no volunteers, hairdressers, entertainers or church services on-site and no visits from allied health professionals, contractors, private carers or NDIS workers who provide additional care to minimise the risk of community transmission.

We are hopeful that our robust infection prevention and control measures and proactive COVID-19 management plan will continue to keep your loved ones safe.
