The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we care for a person at the end of life, as well as how we support those who are grieving. With the current restrictions still in place, family carers can face more challenges in caring for a person with palliative care needs.
To support family carers, CarerHelp has developed new factsheets and infographics with practical information, pointers, and resources. The resources discuss how to care for a person at home and hospital, as well as arranging funerals and managing grief. Pointers on using telehealth to consult with a health professional, and selecting trustworthy online information are also presented.
CarerHelp is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and is managed by the Australian Carer Toolkit Project. CarerHelp is HonCode certified and is a Healthdirect information partner. For more information visit www.carerhelp.com.au.
