Support for carers program

Gateway Community Services has been fortunate enough to be an organisation which has received funds through the newly announced State Government initiative “”Better Recognition and Support for Victorian Carers”

Across Victoria, more than 736,600 carers give their time, effort and love to look after a family member or friend who needs them.

The Victorian Carer Strategy will help give carers more opportunities to be physically and mentally healthy and socially connected, and improve access to education, employment and peer led support programs.

 

Commencing in 2020

PD Challenger Program

 

This program is designed for carers supporting those living with Parkinson Disease.  The program sets out to equip the carers with an understanding of the challenges that the person living with the disease may face and how exercise can assist to prevent injury that can occur due to the deterioration of the muscle movements.
