Anglicare Sydney is deeply saddened to advise that four residents from its Newmarch House residential aged care site, who had tested positive for COVID-19, have passed away since 8pm last night.
We extend our deepest sympathies to these families for the losses they are experiencing.
Anglicare was first informed of a Coronavirus outbreak at Newmarch House on Saturday 11 April. On the best advice available, we know that it will be some weeks before the home is clear of the virus.
For those residents with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, NSW Health has provided the support and guidance of Nepean Blue Mountains Local Area Health Network and an Infectious Diseases Specialist to ensure residents receive the best medical care possible. We have been provided with significant support from the Commonwealth Government.
This is a tragic time not only for the families who have lost their loved ones but for other residents and families. It is also taking a deep toll on our staff who cared for and knew these residents and families so well.
