Free women’s health and pampering day

Do you know a woman who needs some pampering? Intereach Ability Links and NSW Health have invited local women to enjoy a free women’s health afternoon tea, with complimentary pampering sessions.

 

The day will be held at Intereach Deniliquin Neighbourhood Centre on Tuesday 3 July 2018 and will include free hand massages and hand care from local beautician Mikki Amor. Free child care can be provided but must be requested at RSVP.

 

The event is also an opportunity for women of all ages to learn more about pap tests, breast checks, contraception, sexually transmitted infections and looking after themselves.

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said that women often forget to look after themselves. “There are so many women out there who put everyone else and their needs first and rarely take time to care for themselves. This is a free session offering women the chance to relax, socialise and enjoy some guilt free indulgence.”

 

“The event will also include relaxed and confidential health information, giving women an opportunity to ask questions, get ‘the facts’ and have any health myths dispelled. It’s important that, as women, we look after ourselves. After all, so often the health of those we love starts with us and healthy, well informed women are amazing advocates for health and wellbeing in their own families, and communities.”

Free events to boost carers wellbeing

Carers in the Albury and Griffith areas have been invited to attend free events to help boost their wellbeing.

 

A free information and wellbeing Expo will be held at Mirambeena Community Centre, Martha Mews, Lavington, Albury on Thursday 28 June from 10am till 2pm.

 

The All About ME Expo, hosted by Intereach and the Border Carers Reference Group, is an opportunity to meet with organisations who provide support and services for local carers together under one roof.

 

The event will also feature wellbeing activities, door prizes, information stalls and guest speakers. Catering will be provided.

 

Griffith area carers have been invited to attend a free wellbeing workshop at Griffith Exies Club, Jondaryan Ave, on Tuesday 26 June 2018.

 

The workshops, hosted by Intereach, will feature yoga and mindfulness, self-massage and self care techniques.

 

Two sessions will be held the first from 10am till 12pm and the second from 2pm till 4pm.

 

As many as 12 percent of the local population are carers and nationwide more than 2.7 million people have caring responsibilities. Intereach provides support and respite services for local carers through their Commonwealth Respite Carelink Centre (CRCC).

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said “Carers are everywhere within our communities, and odds are you either are a carer or know a carer. Nobody plans to become a carer, a sudden accident, illness or the increasing frailty of a family member or friend means that any of us could become a carer at any time. Caring can be rewarding but it can also be demanding and exhausting. Sometimes caring responsibilities mean a carer can miss out on socialising, relaxing or enjoying a hobby.”

 

“Too often carers can go unrecognised, but if carers decided to stop performing their caring role, it would cost more than $60 billion each year to replace those supports. Events like this are a wonderful way to show carers that support is available and they are not alone.”

Intereach announced as NDIS LAC and ECEI partner for Mallee and Goulburn

Intereach is delighted to have been announced as the Local Area Coordination (LAC) and Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Mallee and Goulburn areas.

As an NDIS partner, Intereach will deliver LAC and ECEI in the Local Government areas of Buloke, Gannawarra, Mildura, Swan Hill, Moira, Greater Shepparton, Strathbogie, Mitchell and Murrindindi.

Intereach already provides LAC and ECEI services in the Loddon area of Victoria and LAC services in the Murrumbidgee area of NSW. The National Disability Insurance Agency recently announced Intereach as the ECEI provider in the Murrumbidgee area.

Local Area Coordination services assist people to navigate the NDIS. This includes providing planning and coordination services to give people with disability choice and control over the services they use. LAC also supports people to navigate mainstream services and become an active part of their community.

ECEI supports children aged 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability and their families/carers. ECEI works with families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life.

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “Intereach has a long history in working across the Riverina Murray region and we look forward to working with local people to ensure they receive the assistance they deserve. Intereach already has significant experience in delivering Local Area Coordination and Early Childhood Early Intervention services and we are excited for the opportunity to draw upon this expertise to support local people.”

Planning for the establishment of the LAC and ECEI services in Mallee and Goulburn is now underway.
