RESPONDING TO COVID19

Updated: 25/05/2020 - 11:00am

Getting the support you need.

With the rate of community transmission remaining low, and the rate of testing remaining high, Daniel Andrews and the Victorian Government have announced further reductions in the state-wide stay home restrictions.

Some of these changes will be rolling out as of Tuesday 26th May in line with the return to face-to-face learning in School, whilst other changes will take place from 11:59pm on Sunday 31st May.

As of this time next week (1st June), restrictions will have eased to an appropriate level for DCVIC to resume the provisioning of our normal support services.
 This means DCVIC will be able to begin planning community access shifts as well as continuing to provision in-home support shifts.

Returning to normal support will be different for everybody based on your circumstances. We highly encourage you to call us on 03 9052 4470, or request a call-back to discuss your return to supports.

 

You can also email us at info@dcvic.com.au or by heading to our Facebook page.

 

GOVERNMENT RESPONSE

Whilst restrictions are beginning to ease, it is natural to be nervous about returning to a somewhat normal way of life. Ensuring you are receiving accurate information is one way to reduce anxiety about returning to normalcy.

For us in Victoria, the best place to go is the Department of Health & Human Services website (click here). The NDIS have also published specific advice for it's participants (click here), as to has the TAC (click here). You can also read the Australian Government Department of Health response (click here).
