supporting carers in the north

Northern Carers Network provides support to Carers living in Adelaide's Northern region. Funded by both Federal and State government, we offer assistance to people caring for a friend or family member in the home environment with a disability, illness or who are frail and elderly.

Our aim is to support Carers in their caring role, through counseling, information, support, advocacy, respite and link them to appropriate services in their local community.

When Carers focus on their own needs and take a little time out from the caring role, the end result is better care for their loved one at home. Achieving that balance is where Northern Carers Network can help.

Who is a Carer?

Carers are people who care for a family member or friend with a disability, chronic illness or are frail aged. Some may provide care for up 24 hours a day in an unpaid capacity with little or no training at all. Others may care for family and friends who are fairly independent but may need someone to keep an eye on them or help them with daily tasks. A Carer can be a family member, friend or neighbour and caring can start at any age, sometimes as young as seven years old.

support groups

 

Northern Carers Network offers access to a range of Support Groups for Carers. Some are specialised and others are more general. Some groups meet monthly and some fortnightly. Some share coffee and a chat and others hear from guest speakers or go out and about. What they all have in common is they provide an opportunity for Carers to connect with people in similar circumstances to their own.
