Caring for others ... all about - Better Health Channel

Caring for others is rewarding but it can be stressful. Support is available from government services and other organisations. You may be a carer of an elderly person or someone with dementia, Alzheimer's disease, motor neurone disease or another condition. Children with Down syndrome, autism or a disability may need special care.


Being a carer has many rewards but the constant demands can leave you feeling exhausted and alone. You may be looking after a child or someone who is elderly, sick or disabled. Learn more about being a carer and find support to help you cope.
