Alfred Health Carer Services

Are you looking after someone? 

Perhaps you care for an older parent who you visit regularly, a partner you look after 24 hours or a child with a disability.  If you're taking even some responsibility for someone who is an older person, or who has a disability, mental illness or dementia then you are one of the 700,000 family carers who live in Victoria.

From August 2014, the Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre Southern Region will be known as Alfred Health Carer Services.

We support carers in Melbourne's south by providing information, support, and access to respite and other community services.  Our role is to try to make the lives of carers a little bit easier.  

We work in the ten local government areas of Bayside, Cardinia, Casey, Frankston, Glen Eira, Greater Dandenong, Kingston, Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip and Stonnington and are a part of Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centres nationally.

Do you care for a person with dementia?  You may like to join a music respite program which makes a connection to music in a supportive and caring environment.
