COVID-19 Updates from Alinea's Executive Director

16 May 2022

Unfortunately, we need to advise of a COVID-19 outbreak at our Osboine facility in Bayswater. If your loved one has tested positive you will be contacted by the facility directly with more details.

 

 

13 May 2022

The coronavirus remains a health challenge and, unfortunately, we have had confirmation that our Wembley aged care facility, Koh-I-Noor, has had a number of residents who have tested positive to COVID-19.

As we have previously noted, we remain ever vigilant with regard to COVID-19 and will, as before, keep the loved ones of all residents fully informed of developments.

We strongly recommend that loved ones of residents do not visit the facility unless it is essential. Essential visits can occur between 10am and 4.30pm every day.

Please ring the site to advise of your intention to visit so that we can ensure you understand what the visit will entail as some visitors involved in our partners in care programme will need to use full PPE.

 

 

6 May 2022

We are happy to report that the COVID-19 outbreak at Ritcher Lodge, one of our Bayswater aged care facilities, is now officially over.

 

 

29 April 2022

We are happy to report that the COVID-19 outbreak at Koh-I-Noor, our Wembley aged care facility, is now officially over.

 

 

28 April 2022

Our Wembley aged care facility, Koh-I-Noor, remains an exposure site (see earlier post). However, as no resident has COVID-19, access to the site for visitors returns to requiring a negative RAT on entry and wearing a mask.

 

 

27 April 2022

Just a reminder that although the mandate for wearing masks will be lifted in Western Australia as of 12:01am, Friday 29 April, it will still apply for entry to aged care facilities.

 

 

21 April 2022

The coronavirus continues to be a challenge to contain and, unfortunately, we have had confirmation that two of our facilities, Ritcher Lodge (Bayswater) and Koh-I-Noor (Wembley), have had positive COVID-19 tests.

As we shared before, we fully appreciate that this information will distress family and friends of residents affected and we remain committed to keeping all loved ones fully informed of the situation as it develops.

With regard to Koh-I-Noor, only a single wing, Jualbup, is affected with one resident testing positive. Only this resident’s room is a ‘red zone’. All the other residents in Jualbup (an ‘amber zone’) can have up to TWO visitors per day (and continue to follow standard entry requirements). Please note the rest of the facility continues as normal.

In terms of Ritcher Lodge, 11 residents have tested positive and the entire facility has been classed as a ‘red zone’. This means only a single essential visitor may visit a resident (and in the resident’s room only) between 11am and 2pm each day. They must wear full PPE with entry and exit through designated doors. The PPE will be provided.

 

1 April 2022

We are happy to report that the Covid outbreak in the Gillon wing of our Osboine facility in Bayswater is now over.

However, visitors are still limited to one essential visitor per resident.

There is one resident who has tested positive in the Glass wing but all other residents have returned negative PCR tests.

Please note that all other restrictions are ongoing.

 

24 March 2022

Unfortunately, with the continuing spread of COVID-19 through the community there has now been an outbreak at our Wembley facility, Koh-I-Noor.

As noted previously, while this may be extremely distressing we are keeping families and friends of residents fully apprised of developments.

Please be advised that visiting hours and current restrictions continue as per normal.

 

16 March 2022

The coronavirus is extremely challenging to contain and, unfortunately, we have had confirmation that our facility, Osboine, has a number of residents who have tested positive to COVID-19.

We understand this news is extremely distressing and many of the families and friends of our residents will have questions and concerns. We know how critical it is to keep loved ones’ informed.

Although we have limited visiting, the service remains open during the following times:

 

Orton, Cameron & Glass

Monday to Friday 10 – 6pm and weekends 10 to 4pm

Two visitors per resident per day

RAT test & vaccination status & questionnaire required for entry

 

Gillon

Daily 11 to 2pm daily

One visitor per resident per day for 1 hour

RAT test & vaccination status & questionnaire required for entry

 

Family representatives will be able to enter on compassionate grounds for unlimited periods if required, please talk with our nursing staff. Partners in care can also continue to share care in consultation with nursing staff. As always, please do not hesitate to contact the nurses should you have any concerns on 9272 9227.

We are working closely with State and Commonwealth Health Departments. Our number one priority remains the safety and well-being of our residents and staff.

All visitors are required to wear face masks and complete a short health questionnaire when they sign in for their visit.
