CARER WORKSHOP SERIES

ARE YOU A CARER? Are you concerned about how changes in disability, aged care and mental health support will affect your role as a carer?

  • A carer is anyone who looks after another person of any age with a disability or mental illness, is ageing, or terminally ill.
  • A carer can be any age and may provide practical, physical or emotional support.
  • A carer does not have to live with the person they care for.

With the changes to funding for people requiring disability, aged care and mental health support, it is easy to see why carers are becoming increasingly confused and fearful.

In this environment, it is easy to forget that these changes also bring great opportunities for both the carer and the person cared for, to examine their current lives and service provision and strive for something better.

This workshop series will empower you, as an individual in a caring role to make the most of these opportunities for the person you care for and for yourself.

Within a supportive and interactive group environment, we will demystify the disability and aged care planning process and look at the carers’ dreams and goals and how to translate them into reality. We will also work on communication skills, which will empower you to make connections and give you confidence when communicating with others in all areas of your life.

This workshop series will run over three days.

When: Thursday 12th June, Thursday 19th June and Monday 30th June 2014

Where: The Willows, 342 Hillsborough Road, Warners Bay

 

Bookings are essential. Please RSVP by 3pm Tuesday 10th June 2014
