Sydney Community Services is a local not-for-profit organisation that helps seniors, people with a disability and their carers live independently in their own home and in their community.
Local Support for Local People during Covid-19 … phone us on 9427 6425
We’re happy to declare we are ‘Covid-safe’ – approved by NSW Government as meeting rigorous standards in training, and new daily procedures and precautions (see details here).
When Covid-19 first arrived, we pared back to essential services needed to keep people well, informed and connected. We continued in-home nursing and podiatry, home-delivered meals and general support for very isolated people without nearby family or neighbourly support. If you are isolated in this way and feeling vulnerable, please phone us on 9427 6425 and we’ll do our best to support you.
Our marvellous volunteers have enabled us to keep up fresh linen deliveries, cleaning, online shopping and other individual support services. Our gardening and home modifications and maintenance teams have been busily working too, at a distance. All services excepting home nursing are now completely contactless, and our nurses wear protective personal equipment and are highly trained in infection control.
Having passed the Covid-safe tests, we’re excited to be reopening group services. Based at our Hunters Hill Community Hub, these support activities for cultural groups, people with a disability and seniors are gradually resuming, often outdoors or spread across two venues including our Lane Cove Community Hub, to meet space regulations (see story here).
Sadly, we don’t have the space to run our busy calendar of just-for-fun social activities at the moment; we look forward inviting everyone back soon.
