BrainLink will extend its Carer Education and Support Program for people with an acquired brain disorder to five regional Victorian locations including Barwon South West, Grampians, Loddon Mallee, Gippsland and Hume.

The one-day workshop and follow up session will provide specialised advice, support and education for the carer to ensure they maintain their health and wellbeing, as well as that of the person with the brain disorder. Local health professionals will also be trained to deliver the four-week program, which will help close the gap on the lack of understanding in this area.
