Assisting more carers regionally

After the success of Benetas’ Dementia Carer Support Groups in Lakes Entrance and Orbost, we’re pleased to announce the expansion of the program into Sale.

Benetas and Alzheimer’s Australia Vic first established the free support groups for people who are caring for someone with a dementia, following significant interest and enquiries from the local community.

A support group for the carers can provide a supportive forum enabling those attending to share their experiences, learn new strategies and enjoy socialising with others who share common problems.

Carers in Sale are now set to benefit, with the group holding its first meeting on 14 March. For more information about the groups, please contact (03) 5155 6000.
