As a Carer, looking after your own health and wellbeing is essential in enabling you to continue to care. To have an interest or enjoy an activity outside of the home can be a positive and life changing experience; it can give you a sense of self worth and build your self confidence. It will provide you with the opportunity to meet other Carers in a relaxed informal setting and can give you some vital “me” time.
Health and wellbeing activities aim to promote opportunities that enable you to improve your health, develop your self confidence and independence and enjoy social activities and experiences.
Opportunities can include pottery, willow weaving workshops to computer tuition, stress management and mindfulness sessions.
Contact the Carers’ Support Service to talk to us about activities and workshops you would enjoy.
There is a lot of choice; it is up to you to take the first step! Talk to us if you feel that you cannot attend because of your caring role.
Upcoming activities include a willow workshop, cup cake decorating, floristry workshop, My Future Care Plan and the Role of a Funeral Director. Click or tap on our activities calendar for more information.
