Helping you help them.

Support for carers & friends

At Wesley Hospitals, we understand (and have seen firsthand) the impact the support of family and friends can have on a person’s recovery journey. But we also understand that caring for someone you love who is struggling with mental illness or addiction can be overwhelming.

We’re here to support you in your role as carer and help make the treatment process as smooth and simple as possible.

You’ll have many opportunities to visit your loved one in our care. However, there may be times when we restrict visitation, depending on the treatment plan. We’ll always share as much information with you as possible, and you’re welcome to connect with us anytime.

We value your feedback.

We’re committed to doing all the good we can – not just for individuals struggling with mental illness and addiction – but for their family, friends and carers as well.

As carers, your concerns can be expressed and heard through our consumer and carer representative committees, which are run at our Ashfield and Kogarah premises.

Each committee is made up of former clients and carers, with lived experience of mental illness and addiction, who meet regularly to discuss important issues and provide valuable representation in a range of areas relating to inpatient care. For more information on how we support carers, please contact us.
