A reminder that there is a national helpline older people who have concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak.
ALONE – the organisation that supports older people – is operating the helpline in association with the Department of Health and the HSE.
The helpline number is 0818 222 024, and is open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday.
Galway Public Participation Network is recommending that community organisations review and update an online spreadsheet developed by ALONE to identify the many local responses to COVID-19 that are being developed.
If an organisation is in a position to offer additional support services to individuals in communities during the pandemic, all organisations providing meals on wheels etc are being urged to fill in the online form, and add their contact details. The form can be found on the following link
