Thank you for your patience in regards to the temporary lockdown over the past few weeks. Everyone has been very understanding and supportive.

I understand that times have been very difficult, and some of you may be struggling in silence. The Swinburne University Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults have launched a National Telehealth Counselling and Support Service for aged care residents, their families, friends and aged care staff. This service has been very successful so far and is completely free of charge. The counsellors are provisionally registered psychologists, social work interns and counselling postgraduates, who are supervised by experienced practitioners. They currently have capacity to offer support to more people, which is the reason we are reaching out to aged care facilities. Staff, residents and family/friends can refer themselves or others via the below link, where you can also read more about the service: www.swin.edu.au/telehealthcounselling
The list of suburbs which are excluded for visits has been updated by adding Mount Druitt and Rooty Hill. See the full list on our booking page.
