Older people are at increased risk of serious illness relating to common transmissible diseases, including gastroenteritis, the flu and COVID-19.
Our team are trained in processes to limit the spread of infection. We screen team members and visitors every day to limit risks to you in line with government regulations. We must refuse entry to any team member or visitor who shows signs of transmissible illness, or if there are signs of infection inside the home.
We ask that you also participate in principles to avoid infection. Always:
Wash your hands before and after meals
Always cough away from others
Stay in your room if you are feeling unwell
Request that visitors stay away from the home if they are unwell
Request that team members sanitise their hands or wear fresh gloves when caring for you
Visiting Marine Views Cottesloe

Influenza (the flu) can be highly infectious and dangerous to older people. We urge everyone to be vaccinated each year. We will ask your consent to be vaccinated and will work with your doctor to ensure access to the vaccination before the start of each flu season.
All our employees, contractors, volunteers, and visitors (including you) must, by law, provide evidence of a current flu vaccination before entering Marine Views Cottesloe residential care home, unless there is legitimate documented evidence that demonstrates medical exemption.
COVID-19 is also highly infectious and dangerous to older people. All our team members and volunteers must, by law, be vaccinated against COVID-19. Although not yet mandatory, we urge all you and all visitors to be vaccinated. We will ask your consent to be vaccinated as required, and we will work with your doctor to ensure access to the vaccination.
