A Carer is a family member or friend who cares for and supports a person with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, alcohol or other drug addiction, or who is frail aged.

Everyone’s path to becoming a Carer is different. Sometimes your family member or friend could unexpectedly need caring for, through a serious accident or chronic illness.

Other times, it’s a gradual process with physical and/or mental changes slowly making it harder for your loved one to care for themselves.

Either way, looking after your own health and wellbeing is important. There is a raft of information about how to support the person you care for – and yourself – that can be confusing to navigate.

This information roadshow, specifically for Carers in regional and remote communities, aims to help you on your caring journey.

There is no cost to attend! Morning tea and lunch are provided.
