As outbreaks of COVID-19 continue to occur around Australia, it’s been a challenging and anxious period for many and a sobering reminder that the pandemic is still very much part of our lives.
Carers Australia understands the problems many carers are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic, including with their income, financial support and looking after the person they care for.
Carers are in a particularly vulnerable situation as they, and the people they care for, are generally more susceptible to infection and have increased day-to-day challenges. However, we recognise the Federal and state and territory governments are working hard to ensure there are supports in place for many Australians in response to this ongoing crisis.
In this section, you’ll find advice for carers on a range of topics, including:
- Official Information
- Caring Advice
- Accessing Groceries
- Aged Care
- Social Distancing
- NDIS Information
- Social Security and Other Forms of Government Assistance
