Alfred Health Carer Services COVID-19 update 27 May 2021

Dear Carers,

Alfred Health Carer Services remains open. You can phone us for support and respite.  However, the recent Victorian Government COVID-19 restrictions will change the way we work with you and the person you care for.


Our on-line events will continue as planned.

No face to face events will go ahead until government restrictions ease.

The following events scheduled from Friday 29 May up to and including Thursday 3 June are CANCELLED.

  • Getaway tour on Friday 28th May
  • Moksha Yoga on Tuesday 1st June
  • Movie at Frankston, Tuesday 1st June
  • Grief and Loss Workshop on Tuesday 1st June
  • Movie at Chadstone on Thursday 3rd June
  • Reconciliation day event on Thursday 3rd June

We will email carers about face to face events planned for after Thursday 3rd June, to advise if these events are able to go ahead.


We will continue to make sure respite we arrange is safe by asking health questions about you, your family and the person you care for.

If you have booked respite and you or someone at home is unwell, call us straight away. We need to act to keep you and the community as safe as possible.

We continue to work with respite service providers to ensure that their personal care staff are vigilant about their own and their families’ health.
