Carers Support Program

ANFE Community Care's Carers Support Program provides one-on-one, individualised assistance to people who cares for someone who is frail aged, has dementia, mental illness, disability, chronic illness or receives palliative care. 

​​
Caring can be enriching and rewarding, deepening friendships and relationships. However it can also be demanding, challenging and lead to social isolation. Taking a break or having some time to relax can be beneficial for both carers and their care recipient.


ANFE Community Care's Carer Support Coordinator provides individual support for carers in need through referral, advocacy, language support and assistance liaising with providers to gain access to services.

 

ANFE COMMUNITY CARE CAN ASSIST WITH:

  • Connection with My Aged Care

  • Face-to-face, telephone and email support

  • Referral to services

  • Respite choices and advocacy 

  • Finding nursing homes, placements and hostels

  • Information and advice on completing documents such as
    carer allowance and carer pension forms

The SA Carers Recognition Act 2005 was developed for greater recognition and support for carers' complex needs.
