Beating the COVID blues

COVID-19 hasn’t been easy for anyone, with social activities and rituals interrupted and cancelled for many people. It’s normal if you are experiencing feelings of loneliness, boredom, anxiety, and depression as a result of this loss of social interaction.

Feros Care is here to help with their 12-week program, Beating the COVID Blues. It’s free of charge. The Primary Health Network (PHN) have funded Feros Care to provide the Beating the COVID Blues program to older Australians in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie region.
