Maroondah Carer Support Group – (non-diagnostic carers support group)

The Maroondah Carers Support group is a monthly group for carers offering social contact, information and advice.

People who are carers have the opportunity to get together to support each other, share and discuss issues and also receive information and advice from professionals regarding resources and ways to manage and cope with their caring role.

The group also offers social contact with others who may be experiencing a similar situation, as well as providing a break from their caring role.

Maroondah Carers Group meets on the second Thursday each month at Kerrabee, from 1pm to 2.30pm.

Pathways For Carers Walks

The Pathways for Carers offers those caring for older people, or people with a disability or mental illness an opportunity to share walks together and to learn more about news, services and supports. Stay after the walk for a free coffee at Bark and Silk.

Anyone who is a carer of someone with a disability, mental health illness or older person is welcome to join us. We have a different guest walker attend each walk who talks about the services and programs their organisation offers carers and the people they care for. The walks are educational as well as offering the chance for some exercise.

The walks are suitable for all fitness levels and no bookings are required.

Weekday and weekend walks are available.
