Important Update – March 2020
Dear Clients, Families & Fellow Service Providers
As you know, there is ongoing and growing concern about the spread of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus.
This is impacting on us here at PoDDSS, and as a disability support service, we have very specific vulnerabilities. These include:
We support many people with supressed or vulnerable immune systems
Some of our services happen in group settings
Our clients’ support needs make social distancing difficult to implement
Our clients may have multiple visitors in their home
Our clients may not understand the risks and additional hygiene measures required
Our clients may be dependent on others for basic activities of daily living
Our clients may not have suitable support and/or accommodation contingencies available to them.
