Outpatient Appointments (CRC)
Our Community Rehabilitation Centre are no longer seeing clients face-to-face, with the exception of some essential service delivery which is necessary to prevent rapid deterioration of health.
Essential home visits are continuing.
We are still accepting CRC referrals so that we can continue support the community. CRC clinicians are providing education, therapeutic guidance and support, and completing assessments via phone wherever possible.
Urgent elective surgery is continuing. ‘Urgent’ means surgery required to alleviate chronic and serious pain, or that is likely to prevent future hospital admission as a direct result of not having had the surgery performed.
Adult Day Services
Our groups and activity programs are not currently operating. We are keeping in touch with clients by phone, email and newsletters.
