Advice from State and Federal Health authorities is being updated regularly and we ask you to please click here to access the most current information. The Queensland government has also issued multiple health directions, some of which are specific to the aged care sector. Specific directions in relation to restrictions on visitors to residential aged care facilities, can be found here.
Hand hygiene is one of our simplest yet strongest defences against the spread of COVID-19. Please ensure that you wash your hands before attending the facility, use the hand sanitiser provided and refrain from touching your face when onsite. These simple measures play an important role in keeping those within the Bellevue Care Centre Community safe.
Bellevue Care Centre requires all visitors to our facility to complete a Health Screening form prior to entry. This form requires you to answer questions pertaining to symptoms, recent travel, contact with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 and current influenza vaccination status. We thank our visitors in advance for completing this form and for their support in keeping our loved ones safe.
Bellevue Care Centre continues to review its visiting arrangements at weekly management planning meetings. We are committed to remaining open to visitors as we value the important role they play in supporting our residents. Please see the latest information distributed to residents and representatives for current visiting arrangements.
We continue to conduct personalised tours for prospective residents. Tours will be conducted in a manner consistent with Bellevue Care Centre’s policies in relation to COVID-19 risk management. We encourage you to contact reception on (07) 3550 5999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment for a personalised tour.
Bellevue Care Centre continues to accept new admissions. A risk assessment will be completed by our senior clinical team to ensure that all precautions are taken to protect our existing and prospective residents.
