Sometimes carers are too busy looking after others; they often do not have time for themselves. AMCS has two projects designed for carers: (1) Working for Carers with Carers and (2) Creative Communities for Carers.
Working for Carers with Carers
Are you a carer of a loved one?
Connect with other carers through free social groups and co-design workshops with partner organisations.
Supported by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
Creative Communities for Carers
The program aims to support and actively engage carers across greater Melbourne and regional Victoria. Enjoy creative workshops to reduce stress and increase community engagement while working collaboratively with artists to create artefacts for an outdoors community festival.
If you’re a carer for someone aged over 65, you’re invited to:
Meet other carers, be part of a creative community and learn techniques to improve your overall wellbeing.
Supported by Carers Victoria.
This carers’ support program provides a short respite for carers to spend time away from their daily activities/duties and recharge their batteries.
It is essential for carers to connect with other people in similar circumstances to exchange experiences in a positive environment and have fun times. I greatly appreciated the outing to Peninsula Hot Springs and hope this type of empowering meetings will continue in the future.
Thank you again for organising a fun and thoughtful event for carers. It was a perfect opportunity to get to know other carers while enjoying activities together.
Peninsula Hot Springs was wonderful. A truly amazing experience to relax from everyday stress of life. Lunch afterwards was a bonus.
