We are Taking Action
As Assistive Technology Specialists, Comfort Discovered has been working on systems and practices to ensure the safety of customers and staff. This continued commitment has helped us to deal with the current challenge we face with Coronavirus. As a nation, and the world in general, we are currently undergoing some tough and challenging times. This makes it particularly hard for those living with a disability, with a medical situation or for an older person. As an Assistive Technology Specialist supply company our mission is to provide independence, dignity and mobility to those that live with physical disabilities, to facing challenges of ageing, or other medical situation that requires our assistance. In this context, we would like to share with you the actions we are taking to protect our customers and staff from the virus.
A large focus of our efforts have been towards minimising cross-contact in the following scenarios:
• Showroom: Our showroom remain open and committed to supporting those who require equipment. Our staff will inquire as to cases of Covid-19 or flu-like symptoms and may restrict access to the showroom depending on the answer. We have decided to keep a track of all those who visit the showroom during this difficult time, and would require contact details for record..In all cases, our staff will thoroughly clean all equipment to avoid cross-infection.
• Our Team: We are committed to take adequate measures to guarantee the safety of out staff as well as our customers. We maintain standard procedures as recommended by the
government to ensure "stop the spread" and to maintain social distancing, in addition to practising a very stringent routine of hand hygiene, surface hygiene and equipment sanitation process.
• Trials: With precautionary measures we are still conducting Trials, however prior to the trial our team will call ahead to ask whether the customer has travelled oversees or with someone who has travelled oversees or has been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or has any fever, cold or flu like symptoms.
• Sales & Service Staff: Our sales and service staff will comply with all local policies and procedures of our clients. They will call-ahead to inquire of cases of Coronavirus. Our service/repair technicians will still be available should your equipment break down. However our service technicians will be wearing gloves and using hand sanitizers when meeting with customers as a precautionary measure. Our technicians will call ahead to ask whether the participant/client, and anyone else present, has recently been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or has travelled overseas or has any cold, fever or flu-like symptoms.
• Equipment Supply Under "My Aged Care" Contract/ DVA/ NDIS: We will be carrying out similar routine, in addition to any special requirement recommended by the specific contract.
• Deliveries: We have adjusted our delivery scheduling to include an inquiry as to cases of Covid-19 or flu-like symptoms. Where this is the case, deliveries will be to the door only.
We will continue to monitor the situation and are here to assist our customers in any way we can.
