COVID Care at Home – Community Conversation
Join the Health Consumers’ Council for a conversation with the Department of Health’s Assistant Director General about the new WA COVID Care at Home program.
As we prepare for living with greater numbers of COVID-19 cases in the community, the Department of Health has launched WA COVID Care at Home. While most people with COVID-19 will be able to care for themselves at home, with some support from their GP, other people may have risk factors that mean their symptoms may be more severe and put them at greater risk of requiring hospitalisation.
WA COVID Care at Home will deliver home monitoring care for COVID-positive people who require it. People who have received a positive COVID-19 test will be enrolled in the program based on risk factors such as age, vaccination status, severity of symptoms, medical history and social factors. COVID Care at Home patients will receive calls from the health care team to check their vital health signs and welfare.
Health Consumers’ Council will be joined by Robyn Lawrence, Assistant Director General, Clinical Strategy and Planning, Department of Health WA, to provide more information to community members about this service.
We will be asking Robyn your questions about WA COVID Care at Home, please submit these with your registration.
Date: Friday 18 February
Time: 10.30am – 11.30am
Online, via Zoom
