It is never too early to attend this informative and enjoyable program, which runs once a week for four weeks - Tuesday 16 May, Tuesday 23 May, Tuesday 30 May and Tuesday 6 June.

Care for Carers enables carers to ask questions and learn from a range of allied health professionals with expertise in MND. This is an ideal program for those who want to further develop ability and confidence to provide day to day care at home for someone with MND and to meet and learn from others caring for a partner, family member or close friend with MND.

Here’s what some of the carers who participated last year had to say:

“The new knowledge and confidence I gained during the program was invaluable for me. It’s never too early to do this course.”

”Things are so much easier for me now. I feel stronger. I know what to expect and I am no longer afraid.”

“It was wonderful to get to know others with a family member with MND and we all learnt so much from each other. I was hesitant to do this course and I am so relieved now that I didn’t miss out!”

There is no charge for you to attend this program but you will need to reserve your place.
