Selected sites to close to visitors

August 2020

Following the small number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in south east Queensland, on Saturday 22 August the Chief Health Officer has directed all aged care and disability accommodation services in greater Brisbane, Ipswich and surrounds close to visitors.

This directly impacts Tabeel at Laidley, Trinder Park at Woodridge, Karawatha House at Woodridge, St Paul’s at Caboolture and Zion at Nundah.

This is a precautionary measure only. There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any Lutheran Service site.

The Queensland Chief Health Officer has also directed that:

  • extra health screening be performed
  • staff do not to work across multiple facilities, and
  • any person (other than a resident) entering the Service must wear a surgical face mask.

We are also asking residents and staff to interact only within their designated community living areas and not throughout the whole site.

If there are compassionate reasons for you to visit your loved one, please call the service to discuss how that may be achieved.

We are unsure about how long these visitor restrictions will remain in place and we will keep you updated.

We will be encouraging and supporting family and friends to keep in touch with loved ones via phone or video calling. We have a complimentary WiFi service and encourage you – if you have not already – to provide your loved one with a communication device such as a mobile phone or tablet.

Our social and lifestyle activities will continue within limitations as we remain dedicated to providing the very best care and support for our residents.

We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our devoted teams across Lutheran Services for their care, dedication and service at this time.

As a precaution the communal areas at our Retirement Villages located in the greater Brisbane, Ipswich and surrounds area are now closed.

This impacts retirement village communal areas at Tabeel at Laidley, Trinder Park at Woodridge, Alondra at Nundah, St Paul’s at Caboolture and Teviot at Boonah.

If you have any enquiries please call 1800 243 935.
