Carer Gateway Talk

20230309 Carers Gateway Public Talk 01

The Chinese Presbyterian Church invited our Carer Gateway Team of Chung Wah CAC to host a Carer Gateway seminar last week at the Hall of the Ardross City. Around 40+ community members with non-English speaking backgrounds participated, and the talk was presented in English and Mandarin.

The presenters kicked off by emphasising the definition of carer. A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to family members and friends with disability, mental conditions, chronic conditions, terminal illness, or an elderly. Most people don't realise they are care-giver. However, providing care is not an easy task, and it can be a challenging role. When someone is caring for a family member or friend with additional care needs, there may be signs that they need support too.

The presenters further elaborate on the Carer Gateway Initiative. It is a free government service to support carers to reduce emotional, social and physical strain and improve overall health and wellbeing.
