Stay Connected, Stay Informed

January 28, 2018

"Humans are social beings, and we are happier, and better, when connected to others." - Paul Bloom

 

 

One of the most important things any bloke who is caring for someone can do is stay updated and informed about what is happening or sometimes not happening in the carer community.  Connecting with organisations that advocate for carers can help you become more aware of the relevant issues and offer opportunities to participate in events and research whilst connecting with other carers.

 

The best way to do this is by connecting with your local, state or territory carer association who provide regular digital and sometimes printed updates to members and subscribers.  Your state association is able to share information about a range of topics including,

 

  • Service provider updates

  • Changes to services

  • Policy updates

  • Current research

  • Events

  • Peer support groups

  • Carer Stories

 

The National Carer Line is 1800 242 636 and will connect directly with your state or territory carer organisation who can provide you with local information and resources relevant to your caring role so that you can connect with services, support and carer communities in your area. 

 

In caring for someone we can often lose touch with our family, mates and colleagues so it is important to stay informed and know the current state of play so that if our circumstances change we are better prepared and know where to find assistance if needed.

 

Men Care Too encourages every one of the 1.2 Million Australian men caring for someone to sign up with their state or territory organisation today.  Click on the relevant link below to get connected and stay informed -
