The Australian Government has a wide range of initiatives to guide and financially support seniors get the assistance they need. A Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre can provide you with information and advice on the care services available in your area, which may assist you. These can be such a relief for carers allowing them to rest and recharge. Once again certain financial thresholds apply.
Most carers give comfort, encouragement and reassurance to the person they care for, oversee their health and wellbeing, monitor their safety and help them stay as independent as possible. Carers help the person they care for to have a good quality of life.
