Updates For Families

Each BaptistCare home has different visiting requirements based on the number of COVID cases in the community.

You can access information specific to your home below. If you would like general information on visiting a loved one, please click on the blue button below to see the Visitor Guidelines page.

Visitor restrictions for each home will change based on the situation in the home and a risk assessment of community transmission numbers in the local community. We ask that you be patient and respectful as the situation in each home evolves. Further information about visiting aged care homes is available from the NSW Health website and the ACT Health website.

Thank you for your patience as we work to keep residents and staff safe from COVID-19. We know it hasn't been easy for you to be separated from your loved ones, and we are working diligently to keep homes open to visitors whenever it is safe to do so.

Visitor Guidelines

Homes with Exposure/Outbreaks
