Carer Resource Guide by Southern Services Reform Group
The Carer Resource Guide has been developed by the Southern Services Reform Group Co-Production Workgroup to provide information on caring for someone with memory loss or dementia and the various phases of the caring journey. The Guide was developed because Carers and service providers identified a need and came together to complete a guide which will support other carers who are in similar situations. The beautiful artwork was created to symbolise and express the carer journey.
You can access the resource guide at https://www.ssrg.org.au/sites/default/files/carer_resource_guide_may_2019.pdf
You can view the Expressing the Carer Journey Through Art video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkbyxDZRjZs&feature=youtu.be
