Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

A CAR­ERS’ sup­port group is com­ing to Rochester.

The group will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion, peer sup­port and recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal car­ers with monthly meet­ings.

Rochester Com­mu­nity House will hold the first meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, June 13 at 10am.

“Car­ers are peo­ple who pro­vide un­paid care and sup­port to fam­ily mem­bers and friends who have a dis­abil­ity, men­tal ill­ness, chronic con­di­tion, ter­mi­nal ill­ness, an al­co­hol or drug is­sue or who are frail aged,” Com­mu­nity House co­or­di­na­tor Amanda Lo­gie said.

“Car­ers come from all back­grounds and range from the very young to the el­derly and car­ing may in­clude emo­tional, so­cial and phys­i­cal sup­port.”

If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing the group, con­tact Amanda on 5484 3600.
