On Wednesday the 11th March the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic.
The continued health and safety of our clients, staff, volunteers and the wider community is our priority. With that being said, a decision has been made to temporarily close all RangeCare and Nambour & District Care day centres beginning on Monday 16th March 2020. Clients who may be impacted by these changes will be contacted directly by a member of our staff prior to your next scheduled service.
All other services will continue to run as normal.
We would like to encourage all clients to remain calm, continue to practice good hand hygiene and remain vigilant.
We apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
