Changes to services provided by our Aged and Disability Team

August 11, 2020

Delivery of the following Aged and Disability Services remain unchanged:

Taking into consideration the continuing advice that people aged 70 years or older, and those with compromised immune systems, remain in the high-risk group and are strongly encouraged to stay at home where possible we will continue the provision of unescorted shopping, to reduce the potential risk of exposure.

Should you feel unwell, particularly with flu like symptoms, please advise the office as soon as possible so we can appropriately reschedule your service.
