Supporting People Living With Special Needs and Disabilities ~ Connecting people, Changing lives…

ASNA Carers weekend

ASNA Carers' weekend.

Residential short break for carers. For social, physical and spiritual development and emotional support.

A carer is a family member, parent, partner, significant other, friend or neighbour who provides care on an unpaid basis. The person they support may have a chronic illness, disability, mental illness or may be frail. Caring is a natural part of life and all people will either provide or require care at some stage of their life.

Caring may last a short time or it may last many years. Carers have added responsibilities compared to other people at the same stage of life, and thus require support during their period of caring.

To this effect and in response, ASNA runs an annual Carers weekend which provides spiritual, social, physical and emotional support for carers. Details for 2010 coming soon

  • Planning for the future
