COVID-19 Service Update: Our Day Programs have reopened with daily limits, COVID-19 screening questions and venue changes in place, please call the centre for further information. Our Overnight Respite service is continuing to operate as normal.
Waratah Respite Services would like to acknowledge the generous donation made by the Coffs Harbour City Rotary Club, which allowed for the beautiful redevelopment of the Centre’s back garden area.
Waratah President Colleen Hull said the ongoing support of Coffs Harbour City Rotary Club was very much appreciated. ‘The Club has been a major benefactor of ours for many years and this funding has allowed for the development of a lovely area for our clients to relax and enjoy the outdoors.’
We are also very excited to announce the reopening our Centre based day programs for older people at Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga from Monday 22 June. You can visit us on Facebook.
Waratah continues to offer overnight respite in our six bedroom Maureen Guthrie respite cottage for frail older people. Being such a small and homelike service we are able to provide individualised care for clients while their carers take a break for two nights or a few weeks.
The Cottage complies with all government regulations applicable to residential aged care services including COVID-19 infection control, rigorous cleaning regimes and intensive staff training.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia, in particular the Gumbaynggirr nation where we work, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures, and to the elders both past and present.
We celebrate diversity, foster inclusion and value a community where everyone belongs
