The federal government has offered all Aged Care providers access to temporary additional staff, who will come from the ranks of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).  We have accepted their offer of assistance, and anticipate some members of the ADF temporarily working short-term at Eventide Homes, possibly from today.  ADF members are trained in Infection Prevention and Control; and have undergone Dementia awareness and other related Aged Care training. 
Please do not be alarmed that the ADF will be here at Eventide. We view the ADF temporary presence as value-adding to our staff, who have done a mighty job working under tough COVID restrictions for the last two years.
