Are you a carer aged 65 years or over? Or if from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background, a carer aged 50 years or over?
Then this session if for you!
You may be a registered carer and provide care for others, such as an elderly person or a friend. But have you considered your own needs and requirements?
Asides from your role as a carer:
do YOU need help with your day to day tasks or health care?
are YOU finding it harder to do things that you used to do?
are YOU feeling isolated and want to connect with others through various activities?
Come and find out about the Australian Government’s My Aged Care – not for the person you are caring for but for YOU! Find out about the types of services that are now available to you. Even if you don’t need help today, it is important to plan your future and be aware of the process and time frames. Find out what you can do now.
Note – This session is also applicable to the person you care for who has a My Aged Care or requires a referral.
