What are community registers?

Registers provide a support service for older people, and people with a disability, who live alone or are socially isolated.

People enrolled on registers typically receive:

  • identity cards
  • fridge magnets
  • stickers to place at the front door
  • newsletters
  • regular contact phone calls if requested.

The phone calls can be used to check on a person's well-being, provide useful information and during summer months, pass on Department of Health information about staying healthy in the heat.

If a phone call and follow-up calls are not answered within a specified time frame, the registrant's nominated emergency contact is notified.

If this person cannot be contacted or is unable to respond, local police officers will check on the registrant's well-being.
