Group Counselling - Carers in Transition

Carers In Transition is a series of educational programs designed to help carers who are managing the end of their caring role. From considering residential care options for the person they are caring for to seeking support after a bereavement, these programs are both educational and therapeutic being facilitated by professional counsellors.

What is Carers in Transition?

Carers in Transition is designed to support carers at three different stages:

  1. Those considering residential care - our program "Considering Residential Care".
  2. Those needing support after the person being cared for moves into residential care - our program "Sharing The Care".
  3. Those who are bereaved - our program "New Horizons".

Program details

Each program is run in a sequence, so it is important for participants to attend all sessions.

Groups are facilitated by a counsellor and kept to a small size of up to 12 participants.

The programs are run at Carers Victoria in Footscray and can be run in partnership at other locations with agencies interested in auspicing the program.

Why choose these programs?

  • These programs combine both educational and therapeutic processes, facilitated by experienced counsellors.
  • Our programs are designed using evidence based research about carer’s needs and issues.
  • They are unique programs targeting specific stages of the caring journey.
  • Exploration, discussion and group facilitation provides emotional support and a safe environment for these conversations.
