COVID-19 and keeping safe
Information about COVID-19 and our services for everyone in our valued community. We’re here for you and are committed to providing essential services.
Are Possability support professionals trained to deal with COVID-19?
Every support professional who works at Possability has trained in infection control; this training is very relevant for COVID-19. We have also provided refreshers, access to an additional training module on COVID-19 and a resource hub to keep all employees updated. Close attention is being paid to hygiene and cleaning at all times and information on correct usage of PPE is provided as needed.
Are support professionals using PPE?
All Possability support professionals are continuing to use infection control precautions and PPE as advised by state health authorities.
Will my services with Possability stop?
The Government has confirmed that support work is considered an essential service, meaning that we will continue to provide supports that you need in your daily life. These will never have to stop.
Through various COVID-19 outbreaks we’ve had to adapt and at times temporarily close some recreational and centre-based services. If this happens again we’ll be in contact with you directly to let you know.
Where can I get more support?
If you want to talk to someone about how you’re feeling or to find out about more support, we’re more than happy to help.
You can speak to:
- Your support staff
- The supervisor for your house.
You can also call the office on 1300 067 067.
