Health and wellbeing coaching


Supporting carers to manage their health and wellbeing.

What is it?

Our health coaches work with carers to focus on being as healthy as possible. They assist carers to identify and prioritise their health and wellbeing needs. Areas a coach can work on include nutrition, physical activity, stress/mood, fatigue, sleep and management of chronic disease.

Who can use these services?

Any carer living in Moreland, Darebin, Banyule, Yarra, Nillumbik, Hume or Whittlesea.


A contribution to the cost of respite may be made, if needed. This will be discussed with the carer before the services start.

Do I need a referral?

No. You can be involved without a referral. Call our team to register. 


We also offer appointments in the community or over-the-phone.

We run events for carers to attend across the northern metropolitan region of Melbourne.

Who are carers?

Carers are family members and friends who look after someone who has problems managing at home or in the community without help. Carers can be parents, partners, spouses, young people, children and friends.

Are there any opportunities for carers to meet other carers?

Yes. We have a number of events during the year that can connect carers to other carers. We also run health and wellbeing events for carers to learn techniques to cope in their caring role.

How will carer services help me?

We will listen to what you want and need and try to help you in your caring role. We have many services that you can choose from. It is important to talk to someone about your experiences and how you are coping.
