Message to the Currajong Disability Services Community about COVID-19
COVID-19 has impacted our world and transformed the lives of so many people, our thoughts are with all who are affected by this global outbreak.
Currajong remains focused on supporting our NDIS participants, their families/carers/support networks and the wider community. This unprecedented crisis has concentrated our efforts on ensuring the safety and protection of our participants and staff while remaining proactively compliant with the Australia Government regulations/recommendations and still providing the high-quality service and support Currajong is known for.
Currajong has implemented all the personal hygiene recommendations and social distancing regulations of the Australian Government and will continue to comply with any future directives to minimise the spread and risk of infection with the Coronavirus. Currajong has implemented several changes in its day to day operation, endeavouring to ensure we can continue to deliver necessary supports and provide the essential services that people with a disability require throughout this time of global and national crisis. These include:
Providing increased 1:1 Support Services rather than group-based activities.
Temporary closure of the Day Program group activity schedule.
Ensuring continuity of support to high-risk vulnerable individuals in their home.
Monitoring access to our Supported Accommodation Services.
Personal consultation with participants and families on how Currajong can best support them through this unfolding crisis.
Ensuring surfaces and equipment are regularly cleaned and disinfected frequently each day and in between use.
Limiting the amount of non-essential travel for Participants and staff.
Allowing office employees who can work remotely from home to do so.
Currajong is committed to supporting individuals with a disability during this challenging time and is continually exploring how we can provide the necessary supports you require. Our team is available for any questions or to discuss your concerns.
Stay safe and well
