Creating a healthier, better connected Gippsland.

Aged care resources

These resources have been developed to support staff in Residential Aged Care Homes, older Australians and their carers.

After-hours support

The After-hours Toolkit has been developed to support staff and residents in Residential Aged Care Homes in the after-hours period.

It has been developed by Gippsland PHN in collaboration with other Victorian PHNs, aged care homes, Ambulance Victoria and the Virtual Emergency so that unnecessary hospital transfers are avoided and importantly residents are kept safe, ensuring they get the right care at the right time.

You can access the toolkit on our website https://gphn.org.au/what-we-do/after-hours-toolkit/
