Op Shop Handover
On Saturday 30 September 2017, SA Country Carers handed all operations of the Opportunity Shop over to Saddleworth District Community Association Incorporated, trading as Saddleworth Peak Body. As of Sunday 1 October 2017, the Op Shop started trading as “Saddleworth Op Shop”, with all funds raised going to projects in the Saddleworth Community.
The commitment of the volunteers to supporting SA Country Carers and ensuring a continued viability of the Op Shop has been invaluable.
We wish the Saddleworth Peak Body the greatest of success in to the future.
Our Carer Support and Carer Respite teams will be at the Balaklava and Clare Shows ready to answer any questions you may have on services.
Keep an eye out for our stall and pop by to say hello.
Balaklava Show is on Saturday 23rd September 2017 followed up by the
Clare Show on Saturday 14th October 2017.
See you at the Show!

Benefits of Respite
Respite care has benefits for both you, the Carer, and also the person you care for. Respite can happen in your own home, as part of a group or in a respite facility. We have all these options available.
Benefits for the Carer can include improved well being, time to pursue your interests, meet up with friends, go shopping or just relax to recharge your batteries. Benefits for the person you care for can also improve their well being too by opening up new experiences increasing social participation and community inclusion. They may go on outings to places they haven’t been before, or do new activities they haven’t yet experienced.
We currently have respite vacancies for Aged Clients at Grevillea House, as well as vacancies for “in home” respite. Please call Denisia or Melissa on 1300 686 405 for further information and to talk about your respite options.
