Visitation arrangements

We are delighted to be able to offer visiting 7 days per week with no appointment necessary between the hours of 9am-7pm.

The situation could change quickly though should there be any major outbreak of Covid-19. Please check the NSW Health for locations of interests. If you have been to an area listed on this website, please ring and speak to our Director of Care or a Registered Nurse to discuss further and to see how we may be able to facilitate a visit.

If residents are palliating, families should speak to a member of our clinical team to discuss alternative visiting arrangements.

In general, please do not visit if you have

  • returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • been in contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • have a cold, fever or symptoms of a respiratory illness
  • have been to an outbreak area as per advice from NSW Health –  here 

If  you are not able to visit the facility, Zoom and FaceTime is available to anyone who wishes to connect with their loved one and appointments can be made via Reception on (02) 4935 0300.
