How to support older Australians to remain healthy at home

Ageing Australians and those with complex health conditions are more susceptible to germs and viruses including COVID-19. Here are some simple tips to safeguard you and your elderly loved ones so they can remain safe and conformable in their own home:

  • Speak to your doctor or caregiver about your medication and medical equipment (oxygen, incontinence, dialysis, wound care) and arrange to have extra supplies
  • Shop online to minimise exposure to germs and viruses
  • Closely monitor your food supplies so there are sufficient non-perishable food items (canned vegetables, fruit and soups, pasta, rice and long-life milk)

This will help you to maintain a healthy balanced diet. If you care for a loved one living in a care facility, closely monitor the situation, ask about the health of the other residents frequently, and familiarise yourself with the protocol should there be an outbreak. Visit the government website.
