Our Day Tripper bus is ready for action once again!
We are excited to host our Day Tripper outings from next week. It has been a long time coming but the health and safety of our clients has been our top priority.
Julie Hale, incoming CEO, Clever Care NOW enjoyed an interview recently with Bryan Bateman of local radio station 2NBC 90.1 FM.
Update 1 July 2020: The return of our Day Tripper service will wait a little longer. Due to the recent outbreak in Victoria, we will keep our Day Tripper program on hold until we review the situation again in mid July. We hope to open up bookings again soon.
Our Day Tripper door to door social outings for seniors will return from 6 July.
Whilst we are pleased to open bookings for our Day Tripper bus once again, it will be a modified program to allow our clients to socialise safely and ensure the utmost precaution and care is taken.
Initially, our Day Trips will operate five days per week to mostly outdoor locations and shopping trips. As always, our friendly caring staff includes a nurse on board who will be managing and following social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
Although we are unable to continue our Clever Care NOW Day Tripper program at this time, our Day Trippers are keeping their days busy spring cleaning, knitting, reading, watching television, gardening and keeping in contact with their friends on the bus.
We thank Kerrie and Caroleine from the Day Tripper Program, who continue to check-in with our clients who are socially isolated, by phone, on a regular basis. It is important for us to monitor our client’s wellbeing and offer a listening ear.
