Caring for yourself, the carer
Do you take better care of the person you are caring for than yourself?
If the answer is yes, you will benefit from this workshop. We will explore why your health and well-being are important, and give you strategies to help better care for yourself.
The workshop is open to all families and carers, especially those who find it difficult to care for themselves.
TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:
- Why caring for ourselves is so important
- What stops us caring for ourselves?
- Making a self-care commitment
