About

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, Carers save the Australian Government $40 million per year in caring costs . It is well known, however, that Carers are at risk of poorer health, more chronic conditions, higher stress levels and increased mortality risk – often even more than their care recipients. Even if the person you care for is someone you love, caring takes a physical and emotional toll.

You will learn:

  • different ways to keep well and healthy, whilst caring for others, including:
    • relaxation
    • meditation
    • gentle Tai Chi
  • how to reduce stress in your life and work
  • how to use these methods to assist others
