    COTA Australia, National Seniors Australia, Older Persons Advocacy Network and Dementia Australia have banded together, supported by the Commonwealth Government, to create the National COVID-19 Older Persons Information Line.

    The hotline will help older Australians get the critical information they need to stay healthy and safe during the pandemic, providing an accessible one-stop source for personal support, questions and up to date guidelines.

    Older people and carers are encouraged to call 1800 171 866 to speak to friendly, specially trained staff from a senior’s advocacy organisation.
