COVID-19 has impacted older people in every community. There are a range of ways to provide the extra
support they need.

Specialist Support Worker
Brisbane South PHN is part of a national trial to help Australian seniors learn more about government-
supported aged-care programs and how to access them. Our Specialist Support Worker can help older
people, their families and carers to understand and choose different types of aged-care services.

During these times of social distancing and isolation as a result of COVID-19, we are here to support older
people in the community who are not yet connected with formal or informal support services (including
social support services such as shopping, transport to essential appointments and regular contact via
phone or video call). Use the specialist support worker referral form to make a referral.
