Aged Care Employee Day 7th August
Today is Aged Care Employee Day! It is an opportunity for all of the community to recognise the wonderful work done by workers providing care, so a big THANKS to all of you for contributing to the valuable work we do.
SWCC Employee Recognition Day 31st July and Feedback
Yep, we went a week early with our Employee Recognition Day! I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. I loved the feedback from our consumers! Some made me laugh – other made me cry. Just so beautiful J Thanks to Jenny for interviewing these lovely consumers.
If you would like to give us some feedback on how you thought the day went, please complete a feedback form or send a brief email to Stacie Morabito. Stacie was our Bingo MC on the day – thanks Stacie! We would like to know what we did well, and what we can improve for next year.
COVID-19 – We’re Ready!
We remain in Phase 4 of the “WA Roadmap” regarding COVID-19 and I think there is little chance of WA moving to Phase 5 anytime soon. I believe this is a good thing as it seems to be preventing COVID-19 from getting any traction in WA. The last thing we want is a situation like Victoria, however, should the pandemic “ramp up” again in WA we are ready for it. We have supplies of PPE, Safe Work Instructions in place and have redesigned models of service delivery to accommodate pandemic precautions. All workers – please make sure you are consistently following the precautions and protocols.
COVID-19 Audits and More Training
The Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission has notified SWCC (and all other providers) that it will be carrying our “spot checks” (audits) of whether workers are demonstrating good infection control practices and using appropriate PPE. To ensure we are completely up-to-date with these practices our care workers will be undergoing some further training in PPE use and infection control procedures. The HR Manager is in the process of arranging this training.
