Covid-19 Care in the Community

Covid-19 Care in the Community

 

Life Unlimited has a current Covid-19 information for disabled people. We are hosting a contract centre so you can talk in person if this is easier, and you need information.

For people who require information in different formats we can assist by providing information in the following formats:

  • Easy Read
  • Large Print
  • Verbally (CD)

We can give you this information

  • As a booklet
  • Freephone 0800 008 011

 

Testing positive for COVID-19

Testing positive for COVID-19 – Ki te pāngia koe e te KOWHEORI-19

Most people who get COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms, similar to other common viruses.

The majority of people will be able to manage their symptoms at home while isolating with some rest, fluids and paracetamol.

if you are disabled and have tested positive for Covid in Hamilton, Kapiti, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, or Lower Hutt we can support you with localised information on supports in your area.

Please contact us on 0800 008 011 or email or use our live chat on the website and we can support you.

 

In an emergency call 111

If you or a family member become very unwell or has difficulty breathing, severe chest pain or discomfort, fainting or become unconscious, call 111 immediately. Let them know you are isolating with COVID-19. There is no cost to call an ambulance when you have COVID-19

Local welfare and manaaki support are available throughout New Zealand.
