The Chief Health Officer has also announced that all other aged care services and disability accommodation in Queensland will be closed to non-essential visitors during this time.

All Lutheran Services aged care and disability accommodation is closed to non-essential visitors from 5pm today until further notice.

For all aged care services in Queensland this means:

  • Visitors
    • Only people providing an essential purpose will be allowed to enter.
    • End of life visits will still be allowed.
    • Anyone entering a facility must wear a single use surgical face mask
  • Residents
    • May only leave the facility to receive health care, attend a funeral or for an emergency or compassionate reason.

We understand this is difficult for everyone and thank you in advance for your cooperation.

At this stage we are unsure of when the restrictions on visiting will be lifted, but we will keep you informed.

Please be assured that we will be continuing our lifestyle and creative activities. You are encouraged to do the simple things such as write letters, telephone or drop off gifts at any time.
