The team at Banksia also focus on providing carers with resources and tools to look after their loved ones. Caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness can be isolating, lonely and confronting. Our groups and education sessions aim to provide carers with opportunities to share and learn new skills, socialise with others and gain support from health professionals, including tools and physical activities to care for one’s self.

All Carers of Banksia clients are invited to attend this education session. Our services are provided at no cost to our clients and their carers.

Hosted by our professional staff providing education and support on the topics of: –

  • What to expect when caring for someone with a terminal illness
  • Massage Techniques
  • Ways to incorporate music into caring for your loved one
  • Relaxation
  • Self-care – the importance of looking after your self during this time
  • Question time
