Just because we care

Some things in life are unavoidable; ageing, injury, accidents, illness. But when these things do happen, it’s nice to know that there is someone there to care for us and ease the struggles these circumstances might bring.

In turn, each week hundreds of people face the shock of becoming someone’s carer. Whether it be a good friend or a loving family member, this is a life style change that many people face.

To acknowledge this selfless act, this week is carers week and to take a closer look at what it’s like to be a carer, Angus Randall chatted to Mark Butler, the Federal Minister for Mental Health and Ageing.
