Are you caring for an older person? At Bathurst Seymour Centre we know that caring for someone can be rewarding, challenging and difficult. It is important to look after yourself and also be informed about what help is available to you as a carer. Bathurst Seymour Centre provides support for carers of older people. We can support you with respite options, training and education, a listening ear and other options to meet your needs. Bathurst Seymour Centre also hosts a monthly Carers Support Group. Joining a carer support group is a great way to meet new friends in a safe environment and obtain information about carer support services and learn from others.
Our Carers Support is primarily funding by the Australian Government Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP). Carers play a vital role and Bathurst Seymour CentreCHSP supports care relationships through providing planned respite care services for frail, older people which allows regular carers to take a break from their usual caring responsibilities.
