Making the carers’ role an easier more informed one. Support is provided in the form of welfare calls, information and recommendations to specific services when needed. This service intends to help show clients there is always someone out there to call and discuss a variety of services, options and needs.
A range of respite opportunities are offered at locations such as Phillip Island and Axe Creek in the form of OperationMD! SWAP and OperationMD! ShortBreak. MDA either takes the client or the primary carer on a much needed respite break, to have some ‘me time.’ In many cases, the carer needs someone to talk to about a certain situation, ask advice or simply be steered in the right direction. All conversations respect ones privacy and aim to support and lighten the carers load.
