Carer Wellness at Home

We recognise that carers can often struggle to find time to access support for themselves. With this in mind we now provide an in-home program that will bring our service and support to you.

The Carers WA Carer Wellness at Home Program works alongside the Regional Assessment Service to provide in-home support specifically to carers. We can provide you with:

  • Emotional support
  • Information about services available to support you
  • Help with completing forms (eg. ACROD, Taxi Voucher Scheme)
  • Referral to relevant local carer support services
  • The opportunity to access Carer Wellbeing events and training

For carers to access the Carer Wellness at Home Program, the person they care for must be:

  • 65 years or over (for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders 50 years or over)
  • Receiving Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
  • Not receiving a Home Care Package (carer is eligible for this program if the care recipient has been approved for a package or on the national queue, as long as they are not actually receiving the package)

If you are a carer and would like to register with Carers WA, please call 1800 422 737. The Carer Gateway will direct your call to Carers WA.

The Regional Assessment Service, other service providers and carers can refer into the Carer Wellness at Home Program by completing the referral form here.
