This week is National Carers Week, and Mayflower would like to honour Australia’s amazing unpaid carers who provide care and support to family members and friends.

There are 2.65 million carers currently caring for a loved one, and we are fortunate to work with many of them in our homes.

Every carer is unique with their own caring story to tell. Carers don’t get time off from caring without help from others, and keep going throughout the year.

Help raise awareness this National Carers Week by joining an online event, and learning more about how you can support someone who provides care.

If you are a carer at home and are starting to find you need a little more support, learn more about in-home respite care, and we may be able to support you in taking care of yourself.
