Anglicare Sydney has received a Notice from the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission requiring us to appoint an external adviser to support Anglicare management to meet its regulatory obligations, during the COVID-19 outbreak at Newmarch House.
Anglicare will be making this appointment today.
The new adviser will be appointed by Anglicare for a period of three months. The adviser's role does not extend to any other Anglicare residential aged care facility or any other Anglicare government funded program.
Anglicare Sydney is confident with the support of the adviser and the Commission issues at Newmarch House will be resolved expeditiously.
Residents and families can be assured that this will mean we will have additional expertise to support us during this extremely difficult time.
The impact of the COVID-19 on Newmarch House has been unprecedented for residents, families and staff. All our energy and focus is dedicated to containing the spread and the impact of this devastating virus.
