Hello families and friends of Pennwood,
After a very stressful week it is a welcome relief to hear some positive news for South Australia, and the easing of restrictions from 12.01am Sunday 22 November.
Unfortunately we haven’t received clarification about what these changes mean for aged care facilities as yet. Our peak body has informed us to expect a new Direction for Residential Aged Care either later on today or tomorrow.
At this stage, we are not anticipating that visitors will be allowed into the facility on Sunday, but we are hoping possibly on Monday or Tuesday we can again allow visitors. We may initially go back to the booking system, to ensure social distancing is possible at reception and that screening occurs properly.
As soon as we know what the legislation says I will inform you all via an email and on our Facebook page.
Thank you all for being so understanding through this.
What a week!!! Hope you are all ok and staying safe.
