The Queensland Government has made it mandatory for all health care workers to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by 15th December. This includes all Karuna Hospice Services staff.
Karuna is considered an Essential Service under the current State of Emergency and as such, Karuna will endeavour to keep all services running as normal to the best of our ability.
Clients who are stable may be offered a telehealth or phone assessment rather than a face to face assessment. Clients who are nearing death will be visited unless there is a reason this cannot happen.
Our goal is to ensure we provide the best community based specialist palliative care services as we have always done but also to keep everyone safe. To do this we depend on you to provide us with the information we need in order to do this.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to make contact and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
