Federal Government updates COVID-19 plan for disability care

August 11, 2020

Victoria has again reached its highest number of deaths from coronavirus in a single day, with 19 recorded since yesterday – and 14 of them were once again linked to aged care.

Two-thirds of Australia’s COVID-19 deaths are now linked to this sector, and the Royal Commission into Aged Care has this week been told neither the Commonwealth Department of Health nor the aged care regulator had a COVID-19 plan specifically for the sector.

But the Federal Aged Care Minister Richard Colbeck says the Government has been working on its coronavirus aged care response since January.

With more than 70 coronavirus cases now recorded in disability accommodation in Victoria, advocates have been warning of similar vulnerabilities to aged care homes.

On Tuesday, the Government released an updated plan to respond to a major outbreak in Victorian disability care.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
