Consider a Virtual Visit

Aurrum Aged Care has a range of strategies in place to manage the risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are also encouraging visitors of residents to do a 'virtual visit' so that you can stay connected with your loved one or friend via FaceTime or Skype (using Aurrum's WiFi and iPad's). By reducing the number of people visiting our Care Homes we all signifcantly reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

For assistance please contact your local Aurrum Care Home reception or call 1800 287 786
