COVID-19

At Home Care closely monitors COVID-19 and has strict measures to keep our families, teams, and community safe. We are following Government advice and providing regular updates to our team and families.

The Western Australian Government's extension of the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy includes all people working in disability community care. In line with this Government mandate, every member of the At Home Care team will have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by 1 December 2021 and be fully vaccinated by 31 December 2021.

As always, the health and safety of our families and people is our priority. If you have any questions at all, please contact At Home Care on 9381 3344.

Service provision

The care and nursing services At Home Care provide are essential and proceed as normal, regardless of the presence of COVID-19 in the community. We have a large team of over 550 carers and nurses and can continue to provide our families with consistency of care, even if some of your regular carers are unavailable.

Care if you are sick

At Home Care will continue to care for our families at home if they get sick with a cold, a flu, or even with COVID-19 (assuming hospitalisation is not required). Whilst we are hopeful this outbreak will not reach our At Home Care family, we are prepared if it does.

We have:

  • A large stock of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including gowns, N95 masks and face shields/goggles
  • A dedicated Response Team who are available 24/7, led by our Specialist Infection Control Nurse
  • Protocols, guidelines and an internal training program to ensure our team are confident in the management of PPE, hygiene, cleaning and travel requirements.

Clinical phone support is available 24/7 by calling us on 9381 3344.

What we are doing

Since the beginning of the pandemic At Home Care has been following and adhering to the recommendations and health advice from the WA Government. In addition, we have a dedicated COVID-19 response team, led by a Specialist Infection Control Nurse, who meet regularly and ensure At Home Care is well prepared with the training and protocols, personal protective equipment, and resources needed to continue service provision regardless of COVID-19 in the community.

As a healthcare provider we are taking all possible precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team are receiving regular updates and are strictly following all advice provided by the Government Department of Health regarding vaccination, hygiene and infection control.
