Telehealth counselling and support service
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults is now offering a free telehealth service to provide ongoing emotional support during this challenging period. You can receive this service if you are an aged care resident. You can also receive this service if you are a family member, friend or staff and would like support in caring for a resident.
Our counsellors are provisionally registered psychologists, social work interns, and counselling postgraduates, who are supervised by experienced practitioners. Our counsellors are ready to support you through the next few months by phone or video calls. To request this service, please complete our online referral form.
The Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults would like to thank Arcare Family Foundation. The Aged Persons Welfare Foundation and The Barbara Dicker Brain Science Foundation for supporting the telehealth counselling and support service.
The clinic offers group-based treatment and support services including reminiscence groups and carer support programs.
Reminiscence groups engage older adults to review past experiences, challenges and successes, and aim to enhance personal wellbeing.
Carer support programs address the emotional stress of carers by creating a comfortable and structured space for discussion and learning.
