About the Carer Wellness Relaxation Day
MND Victoria is running Carer Wellness Programs for our carers to give them some tools for looking after themselves while caring for a loved one. The events are also an opportunity to relax and connect with other carers.
This is a free, fully catered event and is open to all current carers of people registered with MND Victoria.
Free overnight accommodation is included in this program if it is possible for you to stay. This also extends to the person for whom you care.
We welcome any current carer to register to attend this program, it is open to everyone, regardless of their postcode. This program has been designed to give you two days of self care and relaxation, but you are most welcome to attend one session if that's all that's possible. The person living with MND is also welcome to attend, unless the session is for carers only. In this case we will make arrangements for an early check in and lunch will be provided.
Who is a 'carer'?
You may see yourself as a partner, relative or friend, not a ‘carer’, when supporting someone you love and care for with motor neurone disease (MND). However, as a 'carer', you can access help from care services as care needs increase.
If you need assistance arranging for someone to be with your loved one to enable you to attend the event, speak to your MND Advisor/Support Coordinator who will be able to assist by referring to our Carer Respite Program.
