Our South Dublin and Wexford branches are open as usual, where we are able to take full hygiene precautions;
- We are concentrating on social distancing and hand hygiene, avoiding touching faces, and taking appropriate precautions with coughs/sneezes. We advise hand sanitizer/hand washing pre- and post-sessions for both clients and staff, and we use sanitising wipes or disinfectant sprays after each client on all hard surfaces.
- We request that any clients who have travelled to a particular risk area in the last 14 days, or any client with respiratory symptoms (regardless of travel), do not attend the clinic. We also ask that only the client and one care giver attend each appointment. We are staggering our appointments so that you spend no time at all in the waiting area.
- We are also using fist bumps instead of high fives, and resisting the requests for hugs!
Unfortunately, our Mallow, Mitchelstown, Tralee and Killarney services are temporarily suspended during the school closure period.
We have decided to postpone the opening of our new North Dublin branch, and we apologise to all our new clients for the delay. The safety and welfare of our service users is our absolute priority, and we hope that you will all return to us when the current health situation resolves.
Our dysphagia services to hospitals and nursing homes across the country continue in consultation with each individual site.
Thank you all for your ongoing support.
