Carers NSW receives funding through Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC), NSW Department of Family & Community Services (FACS), to provide the service in the following regions of NSW:
• South East Sydney
• Mid North Coast
• Orana Far West
A range of other service providers deliver this program across the other regions of NSW. Carers NSW can refer you to the providers in the other regions.
Our aim is to help carers prevent or alleviate the stress that can build up within a family due to the caring role. Our Support Coordinators will help with referrals to services as well as providing information that is relevant to the carer/care recipient and their current situations. Our support plan is designed specifically for the carer and the person they are caring for and is tailored to each particular family situation.
To be eligible for services through the program clients must be an older parent carer of an adult daughter or son with a disability or long term illness, and be aged 60 years and over or 45 years and over if you are from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait background.
