COVID Care at Home
Most people with COVID-19 can care for themselves with some support from their GP.
WA COVID Care at Home delivers home monitoring care for COVID-positive people who require it due to having risk factors which put them at greater risk of requiring hospitalisation.
This is a free service but you will need to register. In order to be eligible for COVID Care at Home you must first have had a positive COVID-19 test result.
WA COVID Care at Home will enroll patients based on risk factors such as age, vaccination status, severity of symptoms, medical history and social factors. Patients will receive calls from the health care team to check their vital health signs and welfare.
COVID Care at Home patients may be provided with an easy-to-use device, a Pulse Oximeter, to measure the oxygen levels in their blood and heart rate. This device is placed on the fingertip and is non-invasive. You will receive full instructions on how to use the Pulse Oximeter.
