Training opportunity – Emotional support

The impact of COVID-19 upon the aged care community has been unprecedented and significant. Aged care residents, their families and staff may feel isolated, worried or anxious. 

The Swinburne Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults has been operating for 10 years. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, they are now offering a free telehealth service to provide ongoing emotional support during this challenging period. 

You can receive this service if you are an aged care resident. You can also receive this service if you are a family member, friend or staff and would like support in caring for a resident. 

Their counsellors are provisionally registered psychologists, social work interns, and counselling postgraduates, who are supervised by experienced practitioners. They are ready to support you through the next few months by phone or video calls. 

For more information, see their Frequently Asked Questions or contact them at  [email protected].
