Support for people with COVID
If you're staying at home because you have COVID-19 and are a vulnerable or older Australian, help is available.
There are many support services which can deliver medicines and groceries to your home. You can also access mental health support.
What you need to know
If you’re home alone, ask family, friends or neighbours to bring you essential supplies such as groceries and medicines.
Your local pharmacy may be able to deliver your medications to you. Ask them if they can provide this service.
You can order groceries online.
Feelings of anxiety, distress and concern are normal. Keeping in touch with friends and family may help. Alternatively, speak to your GP about accessing free or low-cost mental health support.
The Older Persons COVID-19 Support Line provides information and support for older Australians, their families and carers. Call 1800 171 866, Monday to Friday, from 8.30am to 6pm.
