New groups for Central and Northern Victorian Carers
We understand that amidst the hustle and bustle of caregiving, finding a moment for oneself can often feel like a luxury. That’s precisely why we’re thrilled to introduce our latest family and carer support groups designed with you in mind.
It is vital carers feel supported and connected
Caring for someone with a disability takes a lot of heart, patience, and strength. That’s why it’s crucial for carers to feel like they have a support system and are part of a community. Think about it: trying to handle everything alone can be overwhelming. But with family and carer support groups, it’s a whole different ball game.
These groups are like a breath of fresh air, offering a chance to chat, share tips, or release steam. They’re not just about emotional support, though; they’re also about sharing practical advice. It’s all about making the journey smoother and more fulfilling for the carer and the one they care for.
Relaxed and inclusive spaces for carers
Lifely’s family and carer support groups are like those local coffee shops where everyone knows your name – super welcoming and inclusive, just the spot for carers to feel at home! Our support groups are crafted to be a blend of warmth, understanding, and camaraderie. It’s not just about sharing experiences; it’s about building a community.
