Family & Carer Support

Family & Carer Support

Families and carers may have experienced a crisis situation with a loved one may need some support in caring for a person for a period of time. It is very common for family members and carers to suffer from stress and depression because of the demands of their support roles, and because they are anxious about the health of a loved one. The Hobart Clinic encourages carers to identify themselves to staff. If you are in need of an information pack for carers, please inform staff who will arrange relevant information for you.

Family & Carer Support Sessions

We run regular free Family Carer Support sessions on the first Wednesday of the month at our City Clinic from 5.00 – 6.30pm.

Visiting your Loved Ones

Family, carers and friends are welcome to visit inpatients in our communal lounge or to go for a quiet stroll in the gardens.

Visiting hours allow our residents to attend their therapy programs which is an essential part of their healing.

To respect the privacy of all patients, we request that all visitors first present themselves to reception, or on weekends to the Nurses Station, prior to proceeding to their family or friend.

Visiting hours are:

3-30pm to 9pm, Monday to Friday

10am to 9pm, Saturday and Sunday

If you need to visit outside these hours, please contact Clinic staff on 6247 9960.
