Support for Victorian personal care workers within residential aged care and allied health professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Nursing and Midwifery Health Program Victoria (NMHPV) has extended support to Victorian personal care workers within residential aged care and allied health professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic using a brief intervention and referral model of care.
During these uncertain times, personal and professional responsibilities may have the potential to take a greater toll on our emotional health and wellbeing. It is natural and even commonplace at this time to experience a variety of thoughts and feelings, which may be unsettling.
If you or your colleagues are experiencing sustained periods of exhaustion, anxiety, anger or finding it overwhelming and difficult to process and make sense of things, now could be the time to contact NMHPV to share these feelings with a trusted professional and receive support and guidance on how best to manage this.
No issue too big or too small.
