VMCH's Carer Support program recently held an event at Coombe Yarra Valley, as an opportunity for the full-time carers to get together, socialise and have some time out from their responsibilities. The program provides events for people who live in Melbourne’s eastern region and care for a loved one with care needs including dementia, disability, chronic condition or illness, or older age-related needs. It is a chance for the carers to take a break and enjoy some time to themselves. Some of the carers have shared why they enjoy being involved.
