Carer Support Groups
BY Central Coast Palliative Care Volunteer Foundation
Over the years we have come to realise that carers need support too, and that their needs are not always recognised or validated.
Like the Patient Support Groups, our Carer Support Groups are held in an atmosphere of care and confidentiality. They offer a safe place where carers can share their experiences openly, (as much or as little as they wish), without fear of being judged.
Meeting with other carers can be highly beneficial by countering feelings of isolation whilst offering carers a short respite from their caring role.
