Shepparton Villages will go into full lockdown at all facilities effective immediately (Friday, February 12, 2021) as a precaution.
We apologise for the short notice, and thank you in advance for your patience. You may be aware that Premier Andrews has today announced a strict Stage Four lockdown for five days. The following applies during this time and/or until further notice.
Please contact Executive Manager Care Services Sarah Gaunt on 03 5832 0800 during office hours to arrange a palliative visit, or if it is urgent out of office hours, contact the After Hours Coordinator on 0457 320 828.
Please note that anyone visiting under palliative arrangements must adhere to all infection control protocols.
The Premier’s statement contains information on the Table of Restrictions. We encourage you to check for regular updates.
Please be assured that we are doing everything to keep your loved one safe, and while it will be difficult, we trust you will understand the steps we have taken to move into full lockdown.
Again, I want to remind all families and residents that we can organize phone calls, Zoom, Skype and Facetime to keep you connected and in touch with loved ones. Please call the facility to arrange.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
