Peninsula Villages offers a free social support service to residents and their loved ones to provide support and assist with adapting to change.
This may be required in various stages such as:
- Placement into a residential care facility
- Transition between levels of care (for example independent living to low or high care)
- The passing or imminent loss of a loved one
Adjusting to change during residential aged care can be difficult, particularly if you have been the main caregiver or support person for your loved one. Emotions can range widely and include feelings of relief, numbness, guilt or grief which are all common reactions to such change.
We encourage you to make an appointment to discuss the wide range of emotions that can surface when discussing or changing aged care accommodation and services.
Peninsula Villages provides our free social support service to all residents within our facilities, as well as their loved ones or immediate family members. If you would like to contact us or book an appointment please call our Social Support Worker on 02 4344 9199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
