Important Dates

Not only is it highly recommended to have a flu shot, as of 1 May 2020, it is a requirement that ALL persons entering a Residential Aged Care home must have a current flu vaccination. This will provide additional protection to our staff, residents and their families. A copy (paper, electronic or image) of vaccination receipt must be shown before entry is granted.
Please bear this in mind when considering visiting your friends at Faversham House.
