Carers WA assist people who provide unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who is frail and elderly, has dementia, a mental or chronic illness, a disability, or complex needs, or receives palliative care. You do not need to live with the person you care for. You do not need to be the main source of care and support. You do not have to provide care every day or over many years. You do not have to receive the Carer Payment or Allowance from Centrelink.

Carers sometimes need support to keep going. For a range of respite care services offered in Western Australia see Respite Care Services.
