A message from the President and the CEO of CO.AS.IT.

The world is facing a critical and unprecedented emergency with the outbreak of COVID-19. As we helplessly watch the ever growing number of those affected by it, our hearts are filled with sadness for all the people who have been stricken with this merciless virus. During these difficult times, our thoughts and prayers go to our friends and families, near and far, and to those in the medical profession who are courageously battling against time to save as many lives as possible.

Now more than ever, we need to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, our families and members of staff. This starts with each and every one of us: we can all help and do our part by following the advice of health organisations, in particular in relation to hygiene, sanitation and social distancing. These practices are fundamental to slow down the contagion and allow everyone to access medical resources.

CO.AS.IT. has and will continue to abide to all directives and recommendations from the Government, and we have also introduced additional measures that can be found on our website.

CO.AS.IT. has an impeccable reputation of maintaining high standards, policies and procedures in relation to aged care and education services and as always, CO.AS.IT. is committed to continue providing quality services to our community. We look forward in all working together towards achieving the best possible results for everyone involved with our services. We will continue to keep you, your family, our members of staff and the broader community up to date with the latest information and guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation, hard work and commitment to our organisation.

 

Il mondo sta affrontando un'emergenza critica e senza precedenti con la pandemia del COVID-19. Mentre osserviamo impotenti il ​​numero sempre crescente di persone affette da questo virus, i nostri cuori sono pieni di tristezza per tutti coloro che ne sono stati colpiti. Durante questo difficile periodo, i nostri pensieri e le nostre preghiere vanno alle nostre famiglie ai nostri amici, vicini e lontani, e al personale sanitario di ogni paese che sta lottando coraggiosamente contro il tempo per salvare quante più vite possibile.

Ora più che mai, dobbiamo proteggere i membri più vulnerabili della nostra comunità, le nostre famiglie e il nostro personale. E’ importante ricordare che ognuno di noi può fare la propria parte seguendo i consigli delle organizzazioni sanitarie, soprattutto in materia di igiene personale, pulizia e distanza interpersonale. Queste pratiche sono da considerarsi fondamentali per rallentare il contagio e permettere a tutti di accedere alle risorse mediche.

Da parte nostra, seguiamo e continueremo a rispettare e implementare tutte le direttive e le raccomandazioni indicate dal Governo. Inoltre abbiamo introdotto ulteriori misure preventive che potete trovare sul nostro sito internet.

CO.AS.IT. ha un’impeccabile reputazione come fornitore di servizi di alta qualità e i nostri standard nei servizi d’istruzione e di assistenza agli anziani sono tra i più elevati del settore. Come sempre, CO.AS.IT. si impegna ad eccellere nei propri servizi alla nostra comunità. Lavoreremo insieme e senza sosta per raggiungere il miglior risultato possibile per tutti coloro che sono coinvolti con la nostra organizzazione. Continueremo a tenere aggiornati voi, la vostra famiglia, il nostro personale e la comunità in generale con le ultime informazioni e le linee guida più recenti.

Vi ringraziamo di cuore per la vostra collaborazione, il vostro duro lavoro e il continuo impegno dimostrato nella nostra organizzazione.
