This briefing published by Erosh presents the actions and plans that Erosh is taking as response to the Coronavirus outbreak, as well as to highlight the considerations that sheltered and retirement housing providers need to take when providing their services.

The briefing outlines who is most at risk - and details the specific medical conditions that put the person at higher risk of complications.

It also shows what Erosh members are doing to support residents and staff in ways such as:

  • Communicating more the health implications of the virus, and how residents can reduce the risk of catching the virus, as well as what the organisation is doing to protect its residents
  • Planning to provide signposting and information on financial support services for residents

The briefing also highlights key online resources for residents to find more information about the virus outbreak.
