Herald Sun: Government tells Australians it’s OK to have in-home aged care

Home » In The Media » Herald Sun: Government tells Australians it’s OK to have in-home aged care

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the Australian government has attempted to shield the elderly by implementing stage 3 restrictions and encouraging seniors to self isolate  to mitigate the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome. 

There has been a lot of confusion around aged care services as  many Australian’s have been forced to decide whether to keep their distance from aging family members. Fortunately, the government has delivered some long-awaited answers, with Australia’s Chief Medical Officer, Brendan Murphy, announcing that elderly Australians should keep up their regular home care and health care. The government has highlighted that this is just as important as protecting yourself from coronavirus.

Founder of Prestige Inhome Care and registered nurse Nick McDonald said “it was more important than ever to engage with aged care professionals to help your loved ones through the pandemic’. 

Prestige Inhome Care staff have done extra training to help the community deal with the issues of COVID-19, including sanitary training. 

Home isolation support can everything from assisting you to stay connected with friends and family via video conferencing and social media apps, companionship, delivery of groceries, meal preparation and a whole lot more. We have put procedures in place that help our clients retain socialisation visits with experienced professional carers via phone calls.

Nick McDonald has seen a personal shift in attitudes from the younger generation towards the more senior citizens of our country, a change which embraces inclusion, care and virtual interaction.  

Together, we are setting a new norm – a healthy norm which protects the minds and bodies of our loved ones.
