Who are you caring for?
Our population is ageing rapidly, and many people look after older or frail family members or friends.
Someone With Dementia
Caring for a person living with dementia can be stressful and lonely at times.
Someone With A Disability
The needs of people living with a disability are diverse, and every situation is different.
Someone With An Alcohol Or Drug Related Problem
Caring for someone with an alcohol or drug addiction can be difficult to deal with on your own.
Someone With Ongoing Ill-Health
Caring for someone with an ongoing illness such as dementia or cancer can be challenging and emotionally draining.
Someone With A Terminal Illness
Looking after a person who is dying can be stressful and distressing, and you may need help and support.
Someone With A Mental Health Condition
Mental health conditions vary, and supporting a person with a mental health condition can be overwhelming and confusing.
Are you under 25 and looking after a Family Member or Friend?
Do you regularly help out and support a person who requires ongoing care?
At Carers SA, we believe all children and young people have the right to enjoy life and reach their potential. We can support you to balance your caring role with study, work, and social life.
