The Covid-19 Pandemic: What Lifeworks OT is doing to protect you.

These are uncertain times with the current Corona virus infection. No one really knows how it will all unfold yet. While we are not panicking, it is sensible for us to take some action to protect all our clients and staff.

At Lifeworks Occupational Therapy we care very much about our clients and staff and we would like to reassure you that we are doing our best to keep surfaces and our hands clean and will maintain a safe social distance both in the clinic and during home visits. This means we will not shake hands when we greet you, and will only use direct hands on contact when essential. We are struggling to source hand sanitiser as the stock piling and associated outages continues, but if we have it, it will be available for you to use. Alternatively we have soap and single use paper towel provided for your use in the bathroom at our clinics.

Considering this, we would ask that you please consider the health and safety of yourself and our staff when attending appointments.

If you are in self-isolation due to overseas travel, illness or potential contact with Corona Virus, please contact us to see if we can provide your OT services via telehealth. We will do the same for you if any of our OT’s are in self-isolation. If this is not possible, we ask you to reschedule your appointments to after your quarantine/isolation period.

If you are well and come in to see us, or we come to see you at home, please:

Maintain a 1.5 metre social distance where possible.
Wash or sanitise your hands before and after appointments where possible.
If you need to cough or sneeze, please use a tissue and dispose of it or cover your mouth and nose with your elbow.
Refrain from bringing additional family members/carers with you if possible as the less people in contact with everyone the better.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding on the above. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you
Jacintha Bell and the Lifeworks OT team.
