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 at our City Clinic once a month from 5.15 – 6.45pm. Our planned carers sessions are advertised on this page and on our Facebook page. Our December session details can be viewed here.

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.

Please refer to our homepage for changed visiting hours due to COVID-19 restrictions.
