Visiting our Home
The Willochra Home welcomes all family and friends into our Home, but please be mindful that if you have any signs or symptoms of the cold or flu, to delay your visit to us until you are well. The health and safety of our Residents is paramount.
We ask all of our visitors to sign in correctly to protect both our Residents and Staff.
Please enter through Reception in the main building – there is a bell on the door which you are to ring, and a staff member will then welcome you in. Everyone is to complete the COVID19 screening process which includes having your temperature taken, signing our COVID19 Declaration Form, and providing us with your current FluVax certificate. If your loved one is in Rosier Cottage, after signing in, please walk around the path and over to the cottage.
Please note, it is encouraged that our visitors receive the COVID19 vaccination, as it is one of the best ways to protect each other during these uncertain times. If you have had your COVID19 vaccination, we ask if you can provide us with evidence of this for us to have on file.
Our visiting hours are quite flexible, as we understand that it can be difficult for families to visit during office hours. Please contact the Home on 8636 2320 if you wish to visit your loved one at a different time.
Masks must be worn at all times when visiting The Willochra Home.
Hand hygiene must be attended to upon entering.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
