Uniting Agewell Assist

Support for you at home

Home Support services to support you through COVID-19 and beyond

The challenges and risks associated with COVID-19 are unprecedented. It’s an unsettling time for everyone, and people are understandably anxious. Normal routines and social connections are disrupted, and for many people, accessing services and supplies is becoming increasingly difficult.

At Uniting AgeWell, our primary focus is the health and wellbeing of senior Australians.

Aside from our normal home care, allied health and social support services, we’ve put in place some additional supports to help you get through COVID-19 and maintain your independence and wellbeing at home.

We can boost your existing Government-funded Home Care Package or Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, or we can provide short-term services to ease the burden of the social distancing and isolation requirements in place to reduce the spread and risk of infection.

And the good news is, the Australian Government recently announced that if people have been affected by COVID-19 or are in self-isolation, urgent or immediate services can be put in place for up to six weeks without the requirement for an assessment.

There are a range of services available to you at home, all delivered by experienced and skilled staff well trained in infection control and safe hygiene practices.

There are many ways Uniting AgeWell can support you at home
