COVID-19 Safe visiting guide

While the COVID virus remains in our community and requires our constant vigilance, we need to continue the process of reducing the lifestyle impacts we have carried for so long. It must be recognised that our residents remain highly vulnerable to COVID, Influenza, and other viruses and everyone is responsible to minimise their risk of infection.

It is strongly recommended that everyone visiting or working or entering an aged care facility are vaccinated against COVID & Influenza, but it is no longer mandated by State Health or Rosewood.

The following offers a guide, based on the past experiences to help you plan your visit which ensures the safety of those who work, live and visit either Rosewood Leederville or West Perth facility.

Please note that in the case of an outbreak in either of the facilities the arrangements as below are subject to change, and you will be advised of any such changes in separate communications.

Visiting Arrangements

Please observe the visiting arrangements and always follow instructions from staff:

  • Currently all other visitors must wear a surgical face mask over the nose and mouth and always kept in place and you will be advised when this is not a requirement.
  • Currently, all visitors must provide a negative RAT, as and when required by Rosewood, and enter through reception and you will be advised when this is not a requirement.
  • We continue to recommend visitations are in the resident’s room or open outdoor areas and not in the internal communal
  • To continue to practice social distancing, good hand hygiene and cough etiquette.
  • Continue to sign in using the register at reception.
  • Not present to the facility if you are feeling unwell especially, with any cold like symptoms g., cough, sore throat, fever, runny nose, loss of taste or smell, or gastrointestinal (vomiting and / diarrhoea).
  • Not present to the facility if who are deemed a close contact or suffer from Covid -19 or any respiratory infection for seven (7) days post positive RAT/PCR and have no symptoms of the infection.
  • When requested it may be necessary for you to enter the building or a specific floor or resident’s room wearing full Personal Protective Equipment. Staff will assist you to ensure you wear the PPE correctly at all times.
  • We know our residents enjoy visits from children, however a responsible guardian needs to ensure each child meets the entry conditions and accompanies them at all times.
  • We also request you are patient when interacting with our staff and each other and let’s continue to work together and keep everyone safe and healthy.
