Carers WA workshops are designed to provide carers with information, knowledge and skills to better help them in their caring role.
Our free workshops have been designed to specifically address the issues and concerns experienced by many carers throughout Western Australia.
Our workshops provide carers with the opportunity to take some time out to share experiences and gain valuable information and skills to better help them in their caring role.
Who should attend?
You can attend if you are a family member, or friend, who is caring for a person with a disability, chronic or mental illness, or someone who is frail aged.
Types of Workshops
Join one of Carers WA’s interactive workshops if you would like to take some time out with other carers and share your experiences whilst gaining invaluable information and skills.
- Support and Services for Carers
Accessing the right help can significantly impact on a carers ability to cope with all the challenges they face in their day to day lives. This workshop is aimed at providing carers with information on what support and services are available. We also discuss the importance and relevance of the Carers Recognition Act.
- Safety Essentials
How safe is your home? Are you risking serious injury or harm to yourself or the person you care for? In this workshop carers will identify the risks associated with their caring role and explore ways to reduce hazards.
Maintaining Healthy Relationships
The caring role is often challenging and stressful, which can have an impact on relationships. This workshop will look at the impacts caring has on relationships and how carers can improve the way they communicate to assist them in maintaining healthy relationships.
This workshop looks at why carers need to care for themselves too! Carers often focus all their time and energy on the person they care for, ignoring or forgetting about their own health and wellbeing. This goal-focused workshop gives carers an opportunity to think about the various ways they could improve their wellbeing.
- Practical Matters Forums
Financial Issues, Community Services, Power of Attorney, Respite. What do they all mean? What questions do I need to ask? How do I plan for the future and why? All of these questions will be addressed and more. Our Practical Matters Forums allow carers to meet and chat to a range of carer services all in the one place! They are held four times a year throughout the metropolitan area.
