Caring can be emotionally and physically taxing, with carers having the lowest wellbeing of any large group measured by the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index. As Carers Victoria states, carers are 40 percent more likely to suffer from a chronic health condition. The statistics demonstrate how challenging it is for carers to consciously carve out time to take care of their physical and mental health.
In honour of Carers Week, our upcoming LIVE coaching on October 8 will explore the help you can seek when you’re caring for others. We will discuss the value of therapy and speak with a psychologist who will share some of the practicalities around therapy and the benefits it can bring. We will also explore the benefits of other support systems, such as affinity groups.
Grace Papers founder and CEO, Prue Gilbert, will host the discussion and a live Q&A will run at the end of the event. Panellists will be announced shortly.
