Covid-19 Update

Following the current HSE and National Public Health guidelines there are also extra supports available to older adults who may have other concerns relating to the COVID-19 outbreak:

ALONE Ireland have launched a helpline for older people who have concerns or are facing difficulties relating to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ireland, in collaboration with the HSE and the Department of Health. The helpline will provide advice and reassurance, complementing the clinical advice and HSE helpline and support.

Should you, or an older person you know, need advice or support you can reach them from 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday on 0818 222 024.  Website details >>www.alone.ie<<                                                                                                 

SENIORLINE has been the national, confidential listening service for older people, run by trained older volunteers since 1998.  This peer-to-peer helpline for older people receives in excess of 10,000 calls per year.  

The corona virus is a particular threat to older people and subsequently SeniorLine has put in place a number of protocols to support our many older callers from all over Ireland.  Any caller, concerned about Covid 19, will receive the most up to date guidance as recommended by Government sources. Good health practice is reinforced at all times.  This information is updated daily as the situation changes and is available to each of our volunteers at the phones.

SeniorLine is a FREEPHONE service and our older callers can call free between 10am and 10pm every day of the year on 1800804591. Website Details: >>www.thirdageireland.ie<<
