Tasmania’s border restrictions have eased and a new traveller system called ‘Tas-e-Travel’ introduced. This system means the area where travellers have spent time prior to arriving in Tasmania determines the conditions for their entry into the state, for instance whether they are required to quarantine or not.

Uniting AgeWell appreciates there will be many happy family reunions over the coming months and is well placed to support those visits through its Safe Visiting Guidelines and processes.

This includes a range of COVID-19 precautionary measures such as visitor bookings and pre-screening prior to entry, social distancing and additional hygiene requirements.

Visiting

In line with the current situation in Tasmania, Uniting AgeWell’s visitor access guidelines enable visits to take place on weekdays and Saturdays, with increased visiting hours and visit duration extended to 90 minutes. Visiting hours are between 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday and between 10am to 3pm on Saturday.

Visits will continue to be pre-booked and conducted within visitation guidelines and ongoing screening requirements and precautionary measures to ensure everyone’s safety. Please contact the facility to arrange a time for your visit.

We will continue to offer flexibility for those family members who may have difficulty visiting during the scheduled visiting hours due to work or other challenging circumstances; please contact the Residential Services Manager should you have any issues or concerns and we will always aim to support individual circumstances.

Residents are able to leave the facility for the day to visit with family and friends.
