COVID-19

Glady and Co Action Plan and Covid-19 Information.

Message from Glady - 11/09/2020

Hello Glady and Co Community,

Glady and Co have been working hard over the last few months to adapt to the constant changes that have come along with COVID-19. Being in and out of differing levels of lockdown has taken a toll on how we deliver services but also on the wider community. As always we will continue to be innovative in how we continue to deliver our supports all of you through these ever changing times. Below are some updates for some of our services.

Recovery Coaching.

Glady and Co are working on finalising their newest service. Recovery Coaches work with participants to assist them with their NDIS and mental health recovery journeys. We look forward to being able to offer a new and exciting service to our participants.

Recovery Hubs.

Glady and Co have been reviewing the current situation in Victoria and the new rules around social distancing and COVID safe work practices. Due to the larger space and ability to provide participants with a safer and more “COVID” friendly workspace Boronia will be our main Hub. Mooroolbark will temporarily become the head office for all of our office based Glady and Co staff.

Direct Support Work.

Glady and Co will be continuing to support people directly where possible but will be ensuring participant and staff safety as a top priority. All support workers will have access to hand sanitiser and masks, and direct support will only occur if both parties are well.

Before each support shift the support worker will complete a safety check list and will not see participants if they have had contact with anyone who has Covid symptoms.

Isolation Packages.

We will have some exciting changes coming to this service. More information will be provided as we increase our support. Please contact us on 1300 866 474 or email intake@gladyandco.com.au to enquire.

Warm Regards,
Glady and Co Team

Hello Glady and Co Community,

We have unfortunately had a set back in reopening our Hubs, the government has issued stringent rules around contact with people and we believe we could be waiting longer than the six weeks that we are in isolation.

Glady and Co will be planning as though 6 weeks is our timeline but cannot make promises.

Isolation Packages.

Glady and Co will be expanding the Isolation Care Packages to support more people for this period of time. Our goal is to focus on mental health and your wellbeing during this stressful time. Please contact us on 1300 866 474 or email intake@gladyandco.com.au to enquire.

Online Groups.

Glady and Co will continue to operate online groups, we will be reviewing the groups that are currently running and have a full weekly schedule that can be downloaded from the website and Facebook page. If you would like to contact us to join please call 1300 866 474 or email intake@gladyandco.com.au

Meals.

Glady and Co are continuing to partner with a local cafe who have been impacted by Covid-19.

Milk and Wine in Heathmont will be cooking delicious meals that Glady and Co will be delivering to participants soon! The meals will all come frozen with instructions and your support worker will ensure these get to you weekly.

More information will be provided as we increase our support, please let us know if you are struggling or needing extra support.

Warm Regards,
Glady

Hello Glady and Co Community,

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all got through it OK and are staying healthy and well.

Online Groups.

Glady and Co have begun their online group program and aside from a few glitches, everything has been going really well. So well that we are looking at continuing online groups after things return to 'normal'!

I think it will be nice to have a space for people to join in something social when they are not feeling up to getting out and about.

I have uploaded the Online Hub Calendar which you can download by clicking on the button below.

We have the following groups starting on 20/04/2020:

  • Cooking Group (ingredients delivered to your door)
  • Sensory Group
  • Covid-19 Wellness Group
  • Social Group
  • Pets Parade
  • Meditation Group
  • HeARTful Cards

Exciting News.

MEALS - Glady and Co are partnering with a local cafe who have been impacted by Covid-19. Milk and Wine in Heathmont will be cooking delicious meals that Glady and Co will be delivering to participants soon! The meals will all come frozen with instructions and your support worker will ensure these get to you weekly.

More information will be provided as we solidify our plans, we are currently getting the ordering process prepared and menus confirmed. As soon as we have a start date for meal preparation and delivery we will let you all know.

Warm Regards,
Glady
