Carers Talk is an ongoing support group for carers in the area. Once per fortnight the group enjoys a cup of tea and light snack in the community garden, sharing stories and learning off each other. They often have service professionals visit if requested, such as experts from Centrelink, Police or respite advice. Self-care tips are explored such as breathing exercises, as well as time in the garden or even a gentle walk.
This friendly group is open to anyone who is taking care of someone they know- whether it be their child, mother, friend or even neighbor. The aim is to provide an opportunity for people with similar experiences to come together and receive the help they deserve.
