Adult Wellness Programs

The Carers Foundation Australia helps carers in crisis cope with their role by conducting 3 day wellness programs that increase carer resilience.

Our wellness programs will give you an opportunity to rest and restore your energy, build support networks, reduce anxiety, and ultimately improve your ability to cope with your role.

These programs are conducted in the tranquil surrounds of the Samford Valley, 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD.

At a Carers Foundation wellness program, you will:

  • Rest and recuperate in your own private room to help ease your exhaustion
  • Enjoy delicious, healthy, chef-prepared meals to help nurture your body
  • Make meaningful friendships with other carers who share a similar history so you feel understood and less alone
  • Workshop medical or behavioural problems with other carers and professionals so you leave with new resources and support to help you at home
  • Complementary healing therapies to reduce pain and help your body relax
  • Group and individual therapy sessions with specially trained counsellors so you can speak openly without feeling judged and leave feeling more compassionate towards yourself and your loved one.
  • Art therapy, music therapy, yoga and mindfulness classes
  • Participate in innovative stress management workshops so you are more confident in handling difficult situations when you get home.
  • Take home resources you can refer back to whenever you need some extra help at home.
  • Follow-up online and phone support to ensure you never feel alone or isolated.

The cost of a 3 day wellness program is $1,200.
