Covid-19 information and resources

Jon-Paul from Willowgrove Consulting Limited

We face unprecedented times and there is a shortage of good information around.

We face unprecedented times and there is a shortage of good information around.

We've been watching this train wreck happen since it started in China and we have compiled a resource of well-supported information for people so they can come up to speed on this far quicker.

The measures implemented by the government are welcomed and will help, however, like most things it is helped more by people doing what is asked of them and being informed to do it in the best possible way.

Use of Cheques

Recently the banks announced their intention to cease offering cheque services in the near future. Already organisations such as IRD and the Post Office are no longer accepting them. Some businesses are also starting to become reluctant to handle cash, for fear of infection.

Most of us use cards and internet banking, so this is no problem. However, a significant number of older people don't have access to these methods, and rely on cheques or cash to pay some of their bills.
The covid-19 advice to all people over 70 is to self isolate as much as possible.

Surely the banks should announce postponement of their move and IRD, Post Office etc should reverse their decision for the immediate future to prevent additional stress to some particularly vulnerable members of society at this dreadful time.

I trained as a primary school teacher (completing a Masters of Teaching and Learning with Distinction), but I have also previously tutored high school students in Math and Science (due to my expertise from previously graduating with first-class honours in a Bachelor of Engineering).

So I am available to tutor in all subjects from year 1-9.
and to tutor maths and science for all year levels up to year 13.

For more information,
you can email me on michelledeacon@gmail.com

Two Furnished room in mini-resort is available from today 23 March 2020.

Very close to the beach, 2 minutes walk to Rothesay Bay beach and 5 minutes walks to Browns Bay beach and village with heaps of shops, cafes, restaurants etc.

One room is down the end of the house sharing a lounge, bathroom and toilet with another mature guy living in this end of the house as well.
Per week $290 for one person +$60 for power, water and internet. Extra person per week $80.

The other room is private furnished en-suite with a queen bed and single bed. Private bathroom, toilet, Netflix, fridge and two private balconies with a feel leaving in a mini-resort is available a few months ahead.
The en-suite is per week $390 for one person +$60 for power, water and internet. Extra person per week $100.

House is large and got another living, lounge, dinning and kitchen areas to share plus many decks and great outside area with swimming pool and BBQ and table tennis.

The house is set up as a holiday house, why I'm a bit careful with long term renting. However, we can discuss further if you have more long term in mind.

At the moment I have another two nice mature guys staying in the house as well..

House is big, so still heaps of space for privacy.

If you wish to see one of the rooms, please call or text me to organize a time to visit.

Looking forward to hear from you :)

We care about our Kiwis and take infection control very seriously. We are taking additional precautions to protect our patients from COVID-19.
Our team is thoroughly trained in infection control. Our standard protocol is to disinfect each treatment room between every patient and thoroughly sterilise instruments.
And, of course, we use gloves, masks, and other protective gear all day long. We have a huge waiting area to keep the distance to each other.
We closed our Kids Playzone Area and have also removed books and magazines for now.
As an added measure of protection, we are wiping down waiting rooms on an hourly basis.
We continue to follow the situation closely and are abiding by all recommendations made by the Ministry of Health and the Dental Council.
Your safety is our top priority.
.
We have installed a Patient pre-screening before arrival at the practice for all appointments by phone:

1. Are you or anyone coming with you to your appointment feeling unwell?

2. Have you, anyone coming with you to your appointment or anyone in your household returned from overseas in the past 14 days?

3. Have you been in contact with a person with confirmed or suspicion of exposure to COVID-19 in the last 14-days

If the answer is YES to any of these questions, then any non-urgent treatment should be rescheduled until the person is well and/or the isolation period is completed. If the answer is ‘no’, then a routine
appointment may proceed

A. We ask that when you arrive for your appointment, you use the hand sanitiser that is available in the waiting room.
.
B. We ask that only the patient being treated attends the clinic. If the patient is under 16, one parent/guardian is allowed to accompany the patient. At this time, we ask siblings, friends and other family members to remain outside or to wait in your car.
.
C. If you are feeling unwell, have a cough, fever or other cold/flu symptoms, we ask that you reschedule your appointment.
.
What can we do to make you smile.
