28 February 2022
A number of Carinity services have been impacted by flooding around south-east Queensland:
AGED CARE: Carinity Brookfield Green aged care community is currently inaccessible for visitors due to localised flooding. Visitor access to Carinity Karinya Place aged care is limited due to road closures around Laidley area. There is no immediate threat of flood water entering the buildings. A full complement of staff are on site to ensure the ongoing provision of care to residents and we have a sufficient supply of food and medication.
Yesterday, residents of the ground floor of the Carinity Clifford House aged care community were moved to the first floor of the building as a precaution.
HOME CARE: Home care services have been disrupted due to the effects of localised flooding. Staff have completed welfare checks on clients and essential services are being offered at this stage.
EDUCATION: Carinity Education Southside at Sunnybank is closed today but phone assistance is available to students.
CARINITY FASSIFERN COMMUNITY CENTRE: The community centre at Boonah is closed today as staff cannot access the site due to localised flooding.
DISABILITY SERVICES: Carinity Bunderra (Boonah) and Carinity Our House (Toogoolawah) disability services are closed as staff cannot access the sites due to localised flooding. Staff are providing essential services only and only if it is safe to do so.
COUNSELLING SERVICES: Carinity’s counselling centres are closed but offering online counselling to clients.
