Carer Support Groups

 

Support groups provide carers with reassurance and comfort in knowing they’re not alone.

Support groups meet in Wangaratta, Chiltern, and Wodonga each month. This is a mix of groups for carers of people with cognitive change, memory loss & dementia, as well as groups for carers of people who are aged or have a disability.

The benefits of attending a support group are:

  • Relax, take time out from your caring role
  • Realise you are not alone
  • Understand your feelings & the complexity of the caring role
  • Find out what support & services are available
  • Discover your entitlements
  • Enjoy carer events & outings

“Opportunities for social events are rare. I have so appreciated this trip. It has given me some much needed time-out and the chance to enjoy a laugh with other carers.”
