Carer Policy & Documents

Carer Participation

Central Coast Primary Care (CCPC) actively support and encourage carer participation within its programs and services. CCPC recognises the huge contribution made by family carers in contributing to a loved one’s health and ongoing participation and contribution in their community.

CCPC will, wherever possible, provide for the inclusion of the carer in a person’s activities and plans. We will do this by encouraging and welcoming participation, actively engaging with the carer to determine the most effective support method and through regular feedback and discussion.

Attendance at events or activities for a carer who is accompanying or supporting a person in their participation, will be free of charge wherever possible.  If CCPC does need to charge a carer to participate in an activity, we will only seek to recover costs incurred and will discuss this at the time of booking.
