For the carer (usually a family member or friend) of a person with motor neurone disease.
This two-day residential carers workshop focuses on the physical and emotional aspects of caring for a person with motor neurone disease.
The workshops are free for carers and children of the family, but there are limited spaces so book in early!
It is difficult for motor neurone disease carers to take ‘time out' from caring. MND NSW can help you liaise with your local carers respite centre to get respite care (including overnight) in the home if necessary, so you can participate in the workshop.
The focus of these workshops is to create space for carers to relax and refuel and to meet other people who know what it is like to be caring for a person with MND. You will also learn about:
- motor neurone disease
- services available to people with motor neurone disease and their carers
- tips and techniques for caring
- emotional aspects of caring
- stress management and self-care
This is a great opportunity to:
- have your questions about motor neurone disease answered
- connect with others who are on a similar journey
Link and Learn is usually held once a year in either metropolitan Sydney, or a regional or rural location of New South Wales, or the Australian Capital Territory.
To find out when the next Link and Learn workshop will be held, see our events calendar.
If you would like to suggest a location for a future Link and Learn workshop, contact your MND Advisor or the MND NSW Info Line.
