New Range of Support Services for Carers

“To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors.” – Tia Walker 

Caring for another is one of the highest honours and at Well Placed Care we are here to support, advocate, guide and assist you to provide quality care for your elderly loved ones. 

This is why we are pleased to see the recent announcement from the Department of Health that Carer Gateway service providers are now delivering a range of support services to Australia’s 2.65 million unpaid carers. The Carer Gateway is an Australian Government program delivered through the Department of Social Services. 

The Australia-wide network of Carer Gateway service providers are providing carers with access to: 

  • in-person and phone-based counselling. 
  • in-person and online peer support. 
  • targeted, financial support packages with a focus on employment, emergency and planned respite. 
  • online coaching, information and advice. 
  • practical educational resources to improve carer wellbeing, skills and knowledge. 

Carer Gateway service providers can also help with navigating local services available to carers through government and non-government providers, including the National Disability Insurance Scheme, My Aged Care and palliative care.
