Carer Support provides reimbursement of some of the costs of using a support person to care and support a disabled person.
Carer Support is available for ‘full-time carers’ – a full-time carer is the person who provides more than 4 hours per day unpaid care to a disabled person, for example, the parent of a disabled child.
The number of hours or days that Carer Support is funded for depends on your needs and those of the person you care for.
Carer Support for people with disabilities is funded by the Ministry of Health.
