Face-to-Face and Virtual Services Supporting Families!
Karitane responded to COVID-19 with a 100% digital transformation of services, and with the release of the Australian Government’s “3-Step Recovery Plan” we have re-introduced face-to-face services. We offer both face-to-face and virtual services and our team work with families to match the right service and delivery dependant on each family’s individual needs. As COVID-19 continues to put increased pressure on the health system we don't require a GP/health professional referral. Access for parents remains easier than ever, parents can self-refer on-line here.
The safety and wellbeing of children and their families is always our highest priority. We are guided by advice from the NSW Public Health Unit, and take all possible precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This includes screening all families and staff attending our services each day, adhering to physical distancing guidelines and introducing a range of enhanced infection control measures including increased cleaning schedules at all sites.
Please find an update of our services and our blended models of care below. We remain flexible as we receive updates from NSW Health.
