Dear Relatives, Resident Representatives & St Basils Fawkner Visitors

As you would be aware, the State Government has recently imposed Step 2 Restrictions for Metropolitan Melbourne in effect easing some of the restrictions in place to stop the spread of COVID-19.

As such we are reopening visits, however, for the protection of residents the current policy is that all visits will be conducted using our zero contact visiting rooms.

Visits will be restricted to one person at a time and once a week only on Mondays to Fridays from 10.00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1.00 PM to 5.00 PM.

Please click the following link to make a booking:

We understand that there may be some exceptional circumstances (for example end of life care). As long as you are well, do not have a fever, haven’t been overseas in the previous 14 days, haven’t been in direct contact with a person diagnosed with COVID‑19 and had your Flu shots for 2020, our Facility Manager can arrange this for exceptional circumstances.

The above visits are in addition to virtual visits which remain available using video call on iPad.  We have two iPads which will be available for anyone to dial in and ask to speak to any resident. These are available on Facetime and Skype and details are below.

It is important to work together and support each other as the stresses on our staff and residents are high. We appreciate your support during these challenging times. As always, please feel free contact us if you have any concerns or needs and we will respond to you promptly and respectfully.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.
