If you experience an urgent, unplanned event, that temporarily restricts your ability to care for your loved one, we can organise emergency respite care for your care recipient.
Carer Directed Support
You can have a greater say and more control over the type of support provided for you and for the person(s) you are caring for through the Carer Directed Support - offered in two formats:
- One-off practical support: for purchase of small asset items to assist carers in their continued education.
- Carer Directed Package: this consists of a range of available practical supports to assist the caring role.
In-Person Peer Support
You can connect with people in similar circumstances and decrease carer strain through connection and sharing experiences.
If you are feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed—you can access free short-term counselling service in person with a qualified counsellor.
Facilitated Coaching (will be available from 2021)
You can improve your skills and resilience needed for your caring role through this free psycho-educational service by engaging with a coach across a period of time via phone
