What is CBCHS doing?
CBCHS is following Government guidelines and closely monitoring the evolving situation to protect the health, wellbeing and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers.
Currently most CBCHS health and disability services are operating across our sites with heightened infection control, hand hygiene and social distancing measures in place.
To safeguard the health and wellbeing of vulnerable client groups, we have introduced new models of care for the following programs to support clients remotely:
- All group activities including social support and primary health group activities
- Community Visitors Scheme visits
We are continuing to develop alternative models of care and adapt our ways of to working to support the physical and social needs of clients across all services moving forward.
