mecwacare is committed to ensuring the ongoing health and safety of our vulnerable residents.

At the time of writing this, all 14 sites are coronavirus-free. Your support and cooperation are needed to help us keep it that way.

We regretfully advise that we will be limiting visitor access at all mecwacare Aged Care facilities effective immediately – in line with the Victorian Government’s seven-day lockdown across Victoria.

This means there will be no in-room visits, outdoor garden visits and no outings into the community until further notice.

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 will 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

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 until this current risk of exposure has passed.

mecwacare staff have been advised not to attend work if they (or anyone they have been in close contact with) have visited any of the public exposure sites identified by health authorities or if they or anyone they have been in close contact with have any symptoms of coronavirus.

For the next seven 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.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to the relevant Facility Manager.

Please share this information with family members who may not be on the contact list.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
