Are you caring for a relative or friend who is aged 65 and over; or 50 and over if Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander? Are you in need of some support to balance this role with your work or study commitments? Our Employed Carers Support program can offer you the time and space you need to work towards your own work and education goals without having to sacrifice your caring duties.
We know that being the carer of a relative or friend who is older, or has a chronic disability or illness while balancing the demands of work or study can be difficult and stressful. It’s why we’re here to help.
The Employed Carers Support program can help you juggle your busy life by providing a range of services for the person you care for, including short term respite care at home, in the community, in a cottage setting or an aged care facility; access to day centre and community activities; drop in and wellbeing checks. The program also provides you with much needed time out for you to socialise, study, focus on your work, and enjoy the things you haven’t had time for.
We know that your situation is unique, the Employed Carers Support program has a flexible approach to ensure your individual needs and goals are met.
