Freecall on 1800 699 799

DBMAS Vic aims to improve the quality of life for people with dementia whose behaviour is having an impact on their care by improving the capacity of care workers, family carers and service providers to meet their specific needs. We predominantly provide services to care workers, aged care service providers and carers of people with dementia who receive support through Australian Government funded aged care services.

 

 Carers Vic - Give Me A Break, online course

 

'Give me a break', the first in a series of e-learning modules being developed by Carers Vic Education and Training team, provides an interactive online education program to help carers understand the benefits and barriers to respite, and provide ideas on how to make best use of their valuable personal time.

It is aimed at carers who are isolated as a result of their caring role, and find it hard to access the face to face supports that are available to help them.
