BrainLink Covid -19 Updates 

Some of you may be feeling confused and perhaps a little frightened with the rising number of COVID cases in Victoria and the Stage 4 restrictions that are now in place.  From 11.59 on the 5th August 2020 there will be further restrictions on businesses until Sunday the 13th September 2020.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions BrainLink is not providing any face to face activities, however we are conducting a number of activities via zoom and are developing on line e-learning opportunities. These activities are open to all registered carers across Victoria.  You can see the online calendar HERE

The staff at BrainLink have received many calls from NDIS participants and carers wondering what that will mean to the services that they receive.  We have had lots of questions.  Some examples are:

  • Can my cleaner still come?
  • Can I still have my lawns mowed?
  • Can my attendant care worker still support me?
The official line is:  YES

SERVICES

Check Tick Icon, Transparent Check Tick.PNG Images & Vector ...Building and grounds maintenance, cleaning, pest control and packaging services (where providing support to an essential industry)

If you are receiving services such as getting your lawns mowed, having a cleaner come and clean your house or an attendant carer some and support you with personal hygiene and it is funded by the NDIS or an Aged Care Package then the answer is yes.

However, I also think it is worthwhile thinking about your own health and safety and the health and safety of others in your home.  I would encourage you to ask a simple question:

Do I need this service to remain safe and well in my home?
  • If you answer Yes - then you should continue to receive these types of services.
  • If you answer No - then consider putting them on hold for the next 6 weeks.

BrainLink staff are still working and are here to support you during this challenging time.
