39Plus wants you to know that we are here for you when you need us. We have a range of programs that you can access when you are ready and in need. All carers experience times when just a small break or helping hand can mean a great deal.
Your role as a carer often mean you lack the time and attention needed to focus yourself, on the things that are important to you and to participate in everyday activities that ensure the wellbeing of the entire family.

Whether you are at the beginning of your carer journey or have many years of caring for someone, there are always changes happening that will at times impact on the way you care. Whether new to the role or an old hat, there will always be someone at 39Plus that has time for you and your needs.
We have designed a flexible support system to help you with both daily needs and flexible respite care. There is a lot to take in so have a look across our website and then reach out to us, we would love to talk!
Our life's work is making your life work
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need when they need it.
The Carers Carousel is a network set up to provide you with practical and emotional support through participation in bi-monthly get-togethers facilitated by our trained and compassionate staff. Share strategies and experiences with others in a similar situation while building a network available to support you in a time of need.
The program is based on an informal drop-in and out system available for you when you need us. Share your successes and struggles over a coffee or a lunch date, join in on some of our carer pamper days or to gather information about what is available to you as a carer.
All members of the “Carer’s Carousel” will receive regular updates on meeting venues and proposed activities. For more information please contact our Assessment Team on 1300 397 587 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
