Support for local carers

Support for local carers

Please make sure that family members who assume the role of carer for your patients, are fully aware of Northern Sydney LHDs Carer Support Service. The service has been developed as resource to support them in their caring role. They provide a range of brochures, free of charge, and would be grateful if your practice could make these available to family Carers. Topics include:

  • Advance Care Planning
  • Communication and Care Cues
  • Delirium
  • Is there a young Carer?
Your NSML Primary Care Support Officer can provide your practice with an initial supply of the brochures.

If you need further supplies please contact the Carer Support Service. You can also refer Carers to the Service using the same number 9462 9488.
