Reflections on Caring

Presentation Description
For an increasing proportion of us, the ability to remain in our own homes as we age depends on having a family member who will provide support and care, particularly for those of us who will develop dementia. 

Family, ‘informal’ or unpaid carers are an increasingly visible section of our community. They have been recognised by successive governments as providing an essential service. If unpaid care were to cease, service systems would not cope, nor would the national budget.  Rethinking carer services and supports is well overdue in Australia. Could supports could be reconfigured into more individualised and effective services?  

This presentation will explore caring styles and propose that evidence-informed, individualised, proactive services not only support carers, but may benefit those whom they support and make good financial sense for the country.
