Looking After Me
This is a free course for adults who care for someone living with a long-term health condition or disability. The aim is to get carers to look after their own health needs. It aims to help them take more control of their situation. The course looks at:
- dealing with stress / relaxation techniques
- dealing with tiredness
- keeping healthy - exercise, eating, housing
- coping with depression
- financial issues
- staying connected with family, friends and professionals
- planning for the future.
Looking after Me is led by trained tutors who themselves have experience of being unpaid carers.
The course is made up of six weekly half-day sessions.
