Carers SA Wellbeing programs
7 March, 2017
Carers provide ongoing support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who are frail aged. Carers SA cares for the carers by providing support, advice and much needed respite to help them manage.
Carers SA have partnered with several organisations to develop and present a range of free supporting workshops and skills empowerment sessions aimed at assisting Carers to deal with the complexities of a wide range of associated care issues as well as building wellbeing resilience.
In the coming months Carers are invited to register for several workshops in Murray Bridge, Glendore and Victor Harbor. All programs are designed for unpaid family carers only (not the person they care for who may require in-home respite which we can coordinate) and these programs are not intended for paid support workers.
All programs are free of charge to family carers but numbers are limited so you need to register early.
