Emergency care support for friend

A friend of mine, who is a mother of 3, has injured herself and will be essentially bedridden for 2 months.
She has a partner that works away for a week at a time, has no leave.
How would I find out if she qualifies for any in home support, or who would I contact to help her with this?

What state does she live in? I know options for ACT. In other srates local councils would probably be a good starting point. She would also be eligible for additional childcare subsidies I believe.

the hospital she was admitted to should have a social worker & they should be able to put her in touch with the right support services.
I didn't think it would have been that uncommon in this day & age to not be near you village.
