The Federal Government is making it easier for Senior Australians in self isolation to access personal monitoring technology. The push-button or automated monitoring systems alert a family member or staffed centre in an emergency.
To acheive this the government is allowing Commonwealth Home Support Programme service providers more flexibility to fund monitoring services. The monitoring technology will also be accessible to older Australians who have home care packages.
You can read more about this and other initiatives to support older Australians through Covid-19 on the Department of Health website.
