Presbyterian Support East Coast (PSEC) has responded to carers' needs by funding and developing the Caring for Carers Service across the East Coast region of New Zealand.

Anyone can suddenly become a carer at any time,
“out of the blue”.
There is no training for this or preparedness for the impact on personal, family and work life.

 

Caring for Carers facilitates Carer Support Group meetings in Hawkes Bay.  These meetings offer support and information to Carers. Caring for Carers also provides this website with helpful links to local and national information and support services.  Register to our data base and recieve a quarterly Caring for Carers newsletter.

As a family carer, you have a right to see your own health needs met - both physical and emotional. Keeping well yourself means that you are better placed to carry out your caring role.

If you have found yourself in the situation where you
are providing care to an adult or child in their family with a serious illness, learning disorder or disability this website and Caring for Carers is for you.

 

Caring for Carers offers support carers through the monthly Support Group meetings. A time for carers to……
• Have some ‘me time’
• Enjoy the change of scenery
• Realise they are not alone within the care-giving role
• Socialise with others in similar circumstances
• Gain tips and understanding from others who are in the same situation
• Realise their personal health and wellbeing needs to be considered
• Share resources and information relevant to their experience

Don’t stay isolated and lonely in your caring role.
REALISE - YOU ARE NOT ON YOUR OWN! Register with Caring for Carers to receive regular newsletters and come along to a Support Group meeting
