COVID-19 Support Line

ARAS, the South Australian member of the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) remains committed to supporting the older people in our community during these stressful and challenging times.

If you are feeling isolated, distressed, confused or want to know how COVID-19 affects you, call the COVID-19 Support Line on free call 1800 171 866, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-6pm (AEST), excluding public holidays.

This is a dedicated service for older Australians and provides a safe place to speak with a friendly person who is there to listen and help.

The COVID-19 Support Line is a joint collaboration of OPAN, Council on the Ageing (COTA) Australia, National Seniors Australia, and Dementia Australia, with support from the Australian Government.
