Carers Week: Millions of Reasons to Care
15-21 October 2023
Just like the Carers Australia national theme 'Millions of Reasons to Care' BrainLink will promote stories that showcase many of those reasons throughout the week.
BrainLink’s message is to take time out from your caring role, keep active and stay socially connected and we can help you do all of that.
During the week, BrainLink has arranged a variety of activities and events with guest speakers. This week provides the opportunity for carers to meet and learn from each other.
Remember it's important for carers to look after their own health and wellbeing; for your sake and the person you care for. Look out for BrainLink's articles on carers tips published throughout the week.
When a loved one experiences a brain injury it impacts the entire family and friend's network.
This week commences with Seb and his family and friends inspired to get active for brain injury and carers while shining a light on Sebastian's story.
