While supporting people living with dementia, carers often forget about their own needs. Looking after yourself is vital to both your own wellbeing and your ability to retain your caring role.
Carer wellness program is a group session designed to inform strategies to support positive health and wellbeing outcomes for a carer, family or friend of a person living with dementia.
Participants will be empowered to build self-care skills which improve quality of life in a caring role.
An individual follow up session will be offered to review progress in achieving your goals.
You will gain knowledge in:
- the impact of caring for a person living with dementia on your wellbeing
- strategies to improve and maintain your health and wellbeing
- how to access appropriate services and support
Carer wellness program is not suitable for professional carers or people employed in the health or aged care industries.
