National Carers Week talk

at Spearwood Library

National Carers Week 2021, running from 10 – 16 October, is a time to recognise and celebrate the 2.65 million Australians who provide unpaid care and support to a family member or friend.

Honouring these carers is very important, as people who provide care often experience significant stress or exhaustion, even while they are willing supporters of their loved ones.
