Anglicare Sydney is saddened to announce the death of a resident at Newmarch House last night, who had tested positive for COVID-19. The family has been contacted as have all relevant authorities.
This is a very sad time for the family but also for the residents and staff who knew this resident well.
‘This coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented in terms of its scale and impact across the world. But more importantly we know what a devastating effect it is having on older people’ said CEO Grant Millard.
The challenge of containing this virus has been significant but just as challenging has been finding the best ways to support residents and families with the distress that this pandemic is causing in our residential aged care facilities.
‘Anglicare’s key focus at the moment is to provide a safe and secure home for our residents. All our energies are directed at eliminating this virus from Newmarch House’.
Our thoughts and prayers are with this particular Newmarch family today as they come to terms with their loss.
