We are pleased that during this global health crisis, we have been able to continue our home nursing and patient transport services.
Throughout this pandemic we have been following advice and guidelines from Australian Government Department of Health.
In response, we have been swift to implement our own management plan taking necessary precautions and changes for the health, wellbeing and safety of our clients, staff and community. This meant that some weeks ago, we suspended our Day Tripper program.
To help older, vulnerable Australians feel safe and to provide peace of mind to families and carers, the Federal Government is providing more access to personal monitoring systems for seniors during self-isolation.
Any older Australian experiencing distress, confusion or needing someone to talk about their concerns during this COVID-19 outbreak, can call the support line on 1800 171 866.
During this increased time at home in isolation, being connected online is more important than ever.
But for older Australians who are switching to online support and services, they may be finding this new way of living and communicating quite challenging and daunting.
