Community Is Our Middle Name presented by Grampians Community Health is a weekly podcast where we talk about health, wellbeing, seeking help and about our communities in general.

Episode Fifteen: Older People And Social Isolation

On this weeks Community Is Our Middle Name podcast we’re joined by Julie Scanlon who is an Integrated Care Worker and part of the Older Australian Intiative that Grampians Community Health are running across the Grampians/Wimmera area. Julie discusses the issues of isolation that have been amplified during the past few years due to the COVID pandemic, how this has exacerbated existing mental health conditions, made more older people isolated and lonely and the difficulty of dealing with grief in a pandemic world. We also discuss ways that people like Julie are helping older people reconnect with their communities.
