Carer Support Groups

Carer Support Groups


Support groups provide carers with reassurance and comfort in knowing they’re not alone.

Monthly support groups are for carers of people with cognitive change, memory loss & dementia, as well as groups for carers of people who are aged or have a disability.

The benefits of attending a support group are:

  • Relax, take time out from your caring role
  • Realise you are not alone
  • Understand your feelings & the complexity of the caring role
  • Find out what support & services are available
  • Discover your entitlements
  • Enjoy carer events & outings


Please contact Support Options on (02) 6055 8000 to find out if there is a support group in your area.

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.
