Please note this website will be updated without notice.
Before visiting any of our aged care facilities across NSW and QLD, we recommend you call first to receive the most up-to-date information regarding any restrictions that may be in place at the time. McLean Care continues careful management and strict adherence to screening procedures for any person wishing to enter our facilities. This includes staff, visitors, and contractors throughout QLD or NSW.
Regardless of the easing of aged care restrictions, McLean Care will be maintaining our current processes. Our focus is and will always be on ensure our residents and staff are kept as safe as possible and therefore we will continue to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 community transmission into our homes. We remain committed to ensuring that our residents are able to accept visits from their loved ones, in a safe way, regardless of their vaccination status.
McLean Care will continue to screen all people entering our homes, vaccinated or unvaccinated, which includes rapid antigen testing, wellness screening and providing all visitors with N95 masks to wear throughout their visitation.
McLean Care continues to ensure that we are abreast of all advice and guidelines from the Commonwealth government and the respective state health departments. We work closely with all government organisations to keep open lines of communication and ensure our current procedures are always up to date.
McLean Care has implemented the applicable state public health legislation in regard to Aged Care.
Please see this link for the latest advice.
Our staff continue to receive training and education in Infection Prevention and since the beginning of the pandemic we have worked to ensure that our stores of PPE and other infection and prevention and control stock is increased.
We continue to screen all people entering our homes, and will request a negative RAT or PCR result and also by checking people’s temperature and asking people some questions about their health and wellbeing. We do show people how to keep their hands clean (with hand hygiene) and request that they clean their hands on entering and during their time in our homes.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
