Forty three residents in Cumberland Manor have tested positive for the virus, with a further two positive residents in hospital and one being cared for in their own home.

Outreach doctors from Western Health are on-call 24 hours a day, providing immediate acute care response at Cumberland Manor for our residents.

Aside from ensuring the best of care for your loved ones, we are in touch daily with the key contact of each resident who has tested positive, to ensure that family and friends are constantly aware of their health and wellbeing.

Cumberland Health also regularly updates - every second day - the key contacts of residents who have tested negative.

Cumberland Manor management and senior staff have been, and continue, to work hand-in-hand with state and federal health authorities

We and health specialists are closely monitoring our residents, with the outreach doctors advising on hospital transfers.

To maintain the protection of our residents and staff, Cumberland Manor is adhering to restrictions on visitors, with strict screening of staff and contractors.

Staff are fastidiously adhering to Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) protocols including masks, face shields, gowns and gloves, and don and doff PPE when attending to every individual resident.

We will keep residents, their families, our dedicated staff and our community aware of any changes to the situation and we are absolutely committed to keeping our residents connected with their loved ones and our staff as safe as possible.

Cumberland Manor is dedicated to compassionate care, while focusing on protecting residents, staff and their families.

This is an incredibly stressful time for our residents and their families.

The wellbeing of our residents is our top priority and we appreciate the support we have received from our community at this time.

We also appreciate the assistance we continue to receive from federal and state health authorities, the local Public Health Unit, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and the Older Persons’ Advocacy Network.
