Carers have their own health-care needs, separate from the needs of the people they are looking after. The Carers Program identifies and addresses health inequities experienced by carers and supports services to take a carer-focused approach.
Who are carers?
A carer is anyone who provides ongoing unpaid support to family or friends who need help because of disability, chronic, terminal or mental illness, or who are frail aged.
