• COVID-19 Information for our Communities

    Update

    Resthaven’s focus is on protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents and clients, along with employees and volunteers, and their families. We continue to monitor and review arrangements as information becomes available. This page is regularly updated. Please refer to this page for the latest information.

    SA Health has revised interim guidance for managing COVID-19 outbreaks in Residential Aged Care Facilities. We continue to communicate directly with primary contacts of residents at sites listed as ‘exposure or outbreak sites’ and list any outbreaks under individual aged care home information in the section below (Latest COVID-19 Updates for all Resthaven Residential Aged Care sites).

    Regular Visiting Hours (for sites without restrictions)

    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 10am to 4pm
    • Tuesday and Thursday: 10am to 4pm and 6pm to 8pm
    • Weekends and Public Holidays: 1pm to 5pm

    There are no restrictions on the number of visits or the number of visitors each resident may receive each day. However physical distancing requirements must be maintained, as well as confining visits to resident rooms or designated visiting places.

    It is very important that anyone with COVID-like symptoms or who have COVID-19, or are living with someone in their household who has COVID-19, notifies their Resthaven coordinator or site as soon as possible.

    It is imperative that you let our staff know this before they enter the home. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    Please ensure you have your flu vaccination!

    All people entering a Residential Aged Care Facility must be vaccinated against seasonal influenza and have evidence with them. (Existing exemption criteria continue to apply.)
