Do you know any CARERS? Or are you working with any CARERS?

Carers are people who provide unpaid work/support to a family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, frail aged, chronic illness or those who need palliative care.

Carers may or may not be receiving Centrelink benefit, this does not affect eligibility.

Southern Highlands Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre (SH CRCC) provides support for carers with;

· Emergency Respite – 1800 052 222 is available 24hrs, 7 days a week. For example, should a carer become ill during the night or admitted to go to hospital, carers can feel at ease knowing that they can phone SH CRCC at 3am if necessary.

· Short Term Respite
· Planned Respite

Some of the types of supports, but not limited to, are;
· Domestic assistance
· Counselling
· Social supports
· Personal care
· Nursing care
· Transport to medical appointments
· Respite in an aged care facility
· Courses that are relevant to caring role i.e. first aid

As every care situation is different, we aim to be as flexible as possible to find the respite arrangement that works best for you and your family. We aim to support the diversity of different family needs.

If possible, we encourage carers to register prior to needing assistance.

Telecross Telephone Security Service
Telecross provides peace of mind to people who are isolated through a daily call to check on their wellbeing and safety.

Trained and friendly volunteers make calls each morning, 365 days a year. In the event of three unanswered calls in one day, Red Cross begins an emergency activation procedure to make sure the person is ok. The details of the activation are prearranged with each person registered for Telecross.

Generally Red Cross contacts the participant's emergency contact and that person makes sure the client is ok.

If Red Cross can not get in touch with the emergency contact then we contact the police and request that they conduct a welfare check.
