SA Country Carers follows the Carer Support Model in catering for the needs of Carers.
The model calls for support which is local, driven by the Carer, and offers a flexible range of support to assist Carers to maintain their own health and well-being.
Carer support principles include:
- Respecting the differences and rights of individuals
- Flexible, non-prescriptive programs to meet Carers’ needs
- An emphasis on community development
