Construction and Car Park Update

We are pleased to announce that the front car park is now open for use. Families and visitors can park in the available areas.

Please note that Disabled Parking spots are only for those who have a Disabled Parking Permit. Drop Off/Pick Up and Ambulance areas are only 5 minute parking. Cars are not to be left unattended in these areas (the driver must be in the vehicle in case an emergency vehicle needs access to the area).

The back car park will now be closed for repairs to the gates. Please either park in the front of the building or the side streets.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Department of Health issues regular updates on visitor restrictions to aged care facilities based on the current health information and guidelines.

Each facility is also responsible for the health and safety of its residents, staff and visitors, so may include additional safety measures to protect our vulnerable residents.

Kalyna Care has introduced the ‘Entrytrakr’ QR code entry system as our COVID-19 screening process. It is a requirement of the Department of Health that all persons entering the facility (visitors, staff, contractors and allied health workers) must complete a COVID-19 Declaration and be temperature checked prior to entering the building. A smart phone is required with a QR scanner to use the QR code. A manual electronic sign-in process is also available with assistance from our IPC officers.

All persons are also required to ‘sign out’ either with the entrytrakr app or manually with the IPC officer.

Entry and exit is currently only at the main entrance to the facility (at Taylors Road).
