To assist clinical service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic, caring@home have produced augmented caring@home packages for carers. These include an Emergency COVID-19 pack to support home-based care and help limit risks of community COVID-19 transmission. The packages are funded by the Australian Government.

Using the resources contained in the Emergency COVID-19 packs, health professionals can remotely teach volunteer carers how to insert a subcutaneous cannula or give a subcutaneous injection.

The augmented caring@home package for carers is free and includes:

• Regular caring@home package for carers

• Emergency COVID-19 pack:

  • Starter pack of clinical items for training and practise
  • Step-by-step guides, information sheets and short training videos on USB.

More information about the inclusions in the augmented package for carers and the Emergency COVID-19 pack can be found on the caring@home website.

*The Emergency COVID-19 pack can be easily removed, and the remaining ‘regular’ package used for patients not at risk, or diagnosed with COVID-19.
