Who these services are for

As a result of COVID-19, many people may be:

  • suffering grief and loss from the passing of a loved one or significant changes in lifestyle
  • experiencing trauma as a response to isolation, physical distancing, and visitor restrictions in aged care.

These free support and advice services are available Australia-wide for:

  • residents in aged care
  • home care recipients
  • families of senior Australians, their families of choice, friends, loved ones, representatives and community visitors
  • aged care staff, including residential aged care staff and home care staff, including aged care leadership, nursing and personal care workers, and ancillary staff.

The grief and trauma support and advice services complement mental health resources already available, such as Head to Health: https://headtohealth.gov.au/

For urgent, crisis support, contact Lifeline or Beyond Blue, or speak to a GP.

Mental health support, funded by the Australian Government, is inclusive and respectful of people’s culture, religion, identity and lifestyles.
