Standard caring@home resources for carers and families

Standard caring@home resources, applicable Australia-wide for clinical services, health professionals and carers and families.

**It is recommended when providing resources to carers, that they are printed in colour.

The following resources are available:

  • resources for carers and families
  • resources for health professionals.


Click and confirm the 'I understand' box to the right to access these resources.

    The resources in the caring@home Package for Carers can be used to support families to help manage end-of-life symptoms for a person receiving care at home.


    For patient safety, clinical services using the caring@home resources to teach carers to give subcutaneous medicines must provide a 24-hour phone number to carers to give appropriate clinical advice. If your service does not have such a 24-hour phone number, for patient and carer safety, you must not use these resources to teach carers to give subcutaneous medicines.

    Non-clinical services may use the caring@home Package for Carers as an information and education resource for health professionals.

    To view the resources, please indicate that you understand these requirements by clicking the "I understand" button below.
