We are delighted to announce that Merri Carer Services is expanding to provide Carer Gateway services to carers in the Western Metropolitan Region.
New and existing carers will soon benefit from the holistic support of Carer Gateway’s experienced team. Bringing decades of experience, Merri Health is proud to provide high quality carer services that are tailored to individual needs.
Merri Health are proud to continue working with our Carer Gateway Consortia Partners in Victoria: Alfred Health, Ballarat Health Services, Barwon Health, Bendigo Health Care Group, Family Care, and Uniting (Victoria and Tasmania).
On behalf of Merri Health, Carers Victoria currently delivers the Carer Gateway program in the Western Metropolitan Region. From December, Carers Victoria will cease offering these services to focus on advocacy work.
Merri Carer Services will directly support these carers in the west; and Bendigo Health will deliver the Carer Gateway program to carers in the Melton local government area.
Merri Health and Carers Victoria are working together to ensure carers continue to be well supported and receive uninterrupted Carer Gateway services.
Carers Victoria has made a valuable contribution in delivering Carer Gateway services on behalf of Merri Health in the Western Metro Region and both remain committed to working in partnership to deliver programs and advocacy to support unpaid carers across Victoria.
