Hearth Response to Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Dear Participants, Families and Staff
As many of you are aware
there is a lot of news about the incidence of Coronavirus (COVID-19) becoming
more prevalent in our communities. Here
at Hearth we continue to be guided by the Victorian Department of Health and Human
Services, as well as the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission on how to
respond in the event of an outbreak in these unprecedented times.
What will continue is our
priority of the wellbeing of our participants and staff and that our staff continue to reinforce the importance of our standard
practices that promote participant and support worker safety at all times. As a
registered NDIS provider, Hearth continues to uphold our obligation to the
delivery of safe, quality supports and services, and the management of risks
associated with the supports provided.
Specifically, there are
some practices that are recommended at this time such as hand hygiene, reducing
person to person contact where possible and to be very cautious when
For families it is important that you maintain the
strong communication with your Relationship Manager, as our support worker’s
workplace is your home. Any queries, questions or concerns, please do not
hesitate to make contact 1800 894 013.
