📰 Support sought to Sponsor a Carer for upcoming conference

0 comments

"Calling our unpaid carers the ‘hands on experts’, Carers Australia Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ara Creswell says they have launched a Sponsor a Carer program to assist as many unpaid carers as possible to make it to the conference.

 

With the funds raised through incoming donations, Ms Cresswell says Carers Australia will contribute up to $750 each to as many carers as they can, which will go towards registrations, travel and accommodation costs or replacement care for the person they care for."

    Are you stressed? Do you feel isolated? Then why not try the StressLess app (https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/stressless/id1144731446?mt=8) "New research has highlighted the benefits of using a mobile phone app to manage stress and build the resilience of informal carers. The StressLess app was developed by Deakin University researchers in partnership with service provider Australian Unity. The app features a self-paced program on stress management, as well as prompts and individual feedback to help carers monitor their stress levels and mood over time."

    The best way we can support carers is collaboratively, which will help alleviate the burden carers' shoulder. It's great to see organisations such as Amcal helping these extraordinary individuals. Well done Amcal! “The thing that’s been really reinforced for me is that carers are often thrust into this role where they’re doing, essentially, unpaid health care work, and they don’t often have a health care background,” he says. “And we’re asking them to manage multiple medicines for people, do wound care… pharmacy is in a great position to help, because we’re the ones who see them most often to help them provide for their care recipient. “But we also need to make sure they’re taking care of their own health at the same time. “That role of pharmacy in mental health first aid is something that we, as an industry broadly, need to find ways of doing more." read article in full here👇🏽 Source: https://ajp.com.au/news/helping-carers-health-care-maze/
