Support for Carers

Hepburn Health Service knows how important carers are – not only to the people they care for, the people whose lives they improve on a daily basis, but to the whole community.
Carers provide support to partners, family and friends. They care for someone with a disability, mental illness, terminal illness, chronic illness, or an older person with care needs.

We uphold the Victorian Government’s 5 priorities for carers:

Priority 1  – Carers have better health and wellbeing
Priority 2 – Carers are supported in school, study and work environments
Priority 3 –  Carers can access support and services that meet their needs
Priority 4 – Carers have less financial stress
Priority 5 – Carers are recognised, acknowledged and respected
