Morning @JD and welcome to the Online Community,


How are you doing today? 


I sent you an email with a few options yesterday, but mostly to call 13 11 20 at your earliest convenience as they can help you with services available to you in both Tamworth and Newcastle.


Has anyone else here been in a similar situation to JD and has any insight?


We have a free telephone-based support group for Carer's that may also be of interest to you, it would certainly give you the space to share your experiences and receive support from others who have been or are in the same situation as yourself. If you're interested, please email or call 1300 755 632.
