Carer’s Week (13-19 October)
We’re recognising and thanking carers for their dedication and significant contributions in providing care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who are elderly with care needs.
Carers come in all shapes and sizes from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of tasks and jobs and are an integral part of the Australia’s health system and are the foundation of our aged, disability, palliative and community care systems.
Our Everyday Independence therapists work with carers to build their capacity so that they can support the person they care for to achieve their goals and live a good everyday life.
National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution that more than 2.7 million unpaid carers make to our nation. It’s a great opportunity to show support and recognise each carer’s dedication to their families and friends and say thank you.
Thank you carers.
