“A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue, or who is frail aged”

Being a carer can be very rewarding, however it is important to acknowledge that from me to me carers may need some extra help and support. At Umbrella Inc., our staff and management are always here to support you. We can provide you with services and relevant information which might assist in your caring role.
I am very grateful for the support provided to my mom when I was away. My mom enjoyed the everyday companionship with your Support Worker who is wonder and caring. I will definitely request more respite services from Umbrella in the times of need.
Special carers’ events
The aim of these special events is to help them care for their loved one and also to understand their own needs and what supports are available. Please, contact us for more information about our upcoming events.
Respite Care enables carers to have a short break from their caring role. Umbrella provides a staff member to stay with their loved one at home or at our centre. Respite is usually provided in blocks with a minimum period of 2 hours.
