Health and Wellbeing for Carers
Learning new skills or improving your existing knowledge can make life as a carer much easier. Health and Wellbeing for Carers gives you a better understanding of the problems you may face as a carer and helps you find new ways to tackle them.
This course has been developed in partnership with a number of the Trust’s carers to make the course specific for people who care for people with dementia, mental health and/or substance misuse problems.
By the end of this course, you will:
- Discover how caring affects your life and how to balance your commitments better
- Understand the emotions you may feel when caring and find practical ways to deal with them
- Learn how to relax and take time for yourself.
We define a carer as: “A person who provides unpaid practical or emotional support to someone with a disability, addiction or illness. The person may be a relative, partner, friend or neighbour. A carer can be of any age and may be a young person providing assistance to a parent or another person. A carer may live with the person they care for or provide support from a distance.”
“The programme provided a supportive opportunity to think about myself and my needs for a change, and to explore avenues and ideas for change.“
Lead tutors: Patricia Goodwin and Suzanne Grundy
