On 14th February our Team Leader Stacey and Service Adviser Robyn attended the 2019 Carers Conference for unpaid carers.
There were many service providers showcasing their range of services. Lifetime Connects’ Stacey and Robyn enjoyed discussing services with many of the 100+ people who came by their table. They were able to give some tips on navigating through the range of services available to them including Home Care Packages, Commonwealth Home Support Program services, NDIS services, Family Services, The Men’s Shed, Community Garden and much more. These services that are being delivered to a loved one, can also assist by supporting carers in their caring role.
As the focus of the event was related to Carers, there was much discussion around the Department of Human Services imminent changes to carer supports, brought about by the implementation of the Integrated Carer Support Services (ICSS).
