Carers WA Carer Wellbeing workshops have been developed specifically for WA carers. Each workshop focuses on ways to increase carer wellbeing and build confidence as well as helping to equip carers with useful information that may assist them in their role. Our workshops provide carers with the opportunity to take some time out with other carers, share experiences and gain valuable information and skills.
Who should attend?
You can attend if you are caring for a family member or friend who is living with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue, or who is frail aged.
The caring role is often busy and stressful. It’s easy to forget to look after yourself too! This informative workshop will explore the services available to support carers, injury prevention and ways carers can physically take care of themselves.
Social and Emotional Wellbeing
Carers can often feel isolated and that their relationships have been impacted due to their caring role. This workshop gives carers time to explore ways they can improve their social wellbeing, reduce stress and build resilience.
Peace of Mind
During this workshop we will discuss ways to plan for future care needs, make an emergency care plan and discuss legal matters. We will also look at caring on a budget, available discounts, free services and cheap, accessible activities.
Taking a Break
Do you need a break? If yes, then this workshop is for you! We will look at respite and other creative ways you can take a break, recharge your batteries and return to your caring role refreshed. We will also set goals to help you improve your wellbeing.
