CARERS BREAKAWAY PROJECT
We are delighted that in 2014, SA Country Carers in conjunction with the Clare Lions Club introduce the Carers’ Breakaway Project.
This project is a joint venture between SA Country Carers, Clare Lions Club and over 20 supporting Clare Valley Bed & Breakfasts. The project will provide Carers in SA Country Carers service region with access to overnight accommodation not too far from home, but far enough to provide some ‘time out’ to recharge.
At SA Country Carers we recognise that Carers are able to manage their role better if they can take regular breaks. For many Carers their caring role is a full time unpaid job, seven days a week. Carers are people who often put their loved one before themselves and for many their caring role has become part of their identity.
If you would like to find out more about the Carers’ Breakaway Project please contact the Carer Support Team on 1300 686 405.
