Here are some things we think you should know:
- If you have equipment loaned through EnableNSW that has been damaged or lost because of the recent floods, you should contact us as soon as you can to discuss your options.
- It is important to know some deliveries in flood affected areas may experience a delay. This includes the delivery of equipment as well as consumable goods such as continence, home enteral nutrition and respiratory items. If you are concerned about the delay of your equipment or consumable goods, please contact us to discuss your options.
- Repairers may also experience difficulty reaching people who live in flood affected areas. If you become concerned about the length of time it is taking for a repairer to reach you, please contact us to discuss your options.
- If you don’t have an emergency plan in place, please visit the I’m okay website for tips/resources and a guide to developing your plan.
If at any time you feel unsafe and can no longer manage your disability or health condition safely at home, please contact your local emergency department. For all immediate emergencies, please call 000.
