As restrictions start to ease, we have begun implementing our carefully planned transition so that we may slowly start to get back to some resemblance of normal life.
We continue to develop and refine the ‘Inala Roadmap’ to ensure a phased and carefully managed transition back to normal services. Every step we take introduces new variables; we are very mindful of this and as a result will move cautiously with strategies and protocols in place to appropriately manage any risk.
Below is a high level overview of the phases – we will provide details of the steps and actions in each phase in our weekly communications. We are currently in the final stage of Phase 1, with Phase 2 measures coming into effect from Friday June 12th.
In preparing this plan, we have assessed the risk for individuals (both clients and staff members) based on their age, health and vulnerability and attributed a risk level for each Inala home. We also have a risk assessment for various centre and community based activities, which we will continue to monitor and reintroduce as part of this phased approach. Throughout all of these phases, social distancing, hand hygiene and hard surface cleaning and daily health check protocols apply. As restrictions ease, we continue to review and assess a range of community based activities.
We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support and thinking of us. While everyone navigates their way through this new reality, we hope you all stay healthy and well!
