Coronavirus: Can I Still Find a Home Care Package Provider?
The current situation in Australia and around the world with the coronavirus pandemic has made our everyday activities much more difficult to navigate.
Luckily, the queue for home care packages has not slowed down. In fact, more funding has been announced to ensure that the services that are required remain in place. These services are likely more required now than ever.
Most home care providers are still operating so yes - you can certainly find a great provider during this pandemic.
The majority of home care providers are currently operating in a non-contact fashion, so all administrative contact will happen via telephone. In-home services, such as cleaning and showering, is still taking place.
The latest advice is for anybody aged 70 and above to remain within your home and limit contact with anybody that is non-essential, to minimise your risk of exposure.
