Future Matters: The importance of carers planning ahead


Planning for the future can be challenging for carers, many of whom avoid thinking about future needs for themselves and the person they care for, until they are in crisis. This 1½ hour session provides an overview of the legal, medical, financial and other practical considerations in planning for the future. The session also provides information about tools and supports to help plan and prepare to transition someone to aged and/or end of life care and an opportunity to reflect on the emotional impacts carers may experience at this time.

At the end of the session attendees will receive a handbook providing information, tools and resources to help in future planning.

You will require access to a computer with speakers (a microphone and video camera are a bonus). Training is delivered using the ZOOM platform. Carers NSW will send you instructions about how you can join the session on confirmation of your registration.

The duration of this session is 1.5 hours.
