Support for carers
Do you provide regular unpaid assistance and support for a partner, family member or friend over 65 years of age who is either frail, suffering dementia or requires palliative care? Are you relied upon to provide support like toileting and showering, meal preparation, transport, household chores, shopping and paying bills?
If you said ‘yes’, it sounds like you are one of the many Australian carers who help older people live in their own home and stay connected with their community. Carers like you play a vital role in our community but it’s one that’s both physically and emotionally challenging.
