Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui Trust has been working through our responsibilities as an organisation to ensure we do our best to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 for whānau members registered with Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Maui Trust.
These are unprecedented times and we need to take on board the information and guidelines from our Health professionals. Current plan Our priority is to be prepared by following Ministry of Health (MoH) Guidelines on the health, safety and wellbeing of our whanau, with a focus on our most vulnerable.
This is a serious evolving situation and we need to take preventative action and have instigated a process of welfare calls that will be made to all of our over 60s and those who have underlying illness’s that we have contact details for. If you have whanau that are over 60 years of age and those who have underlying illness’s and they don’t receive a phone call or email from us, please let us know so that we can update our records and enable welfare checks for them.
As staff we will also be following the MoH guidelines, we will be using video conferencing facilities and technology as much as possible to avoid unnecessary travel we continue to operate.
The over-arching message is to protect yourself and others by following the MoH guidelines which are:
Supporting Vulnerable Members of the Whānau
Social Distancing / Physical Contact / Hongi
