Carers' Wellbeing Programme
DO YOU HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER, FRIEND OR NEIGHBOUR WHO CANNOT MANAGE WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT?
Then we may be able to help you!
Chelford Together and Living Well are joining together to present a series of support sessions to help you in your role! As usual Chelford is leading the way and this is a pilot of what hopefully will be rolled out throughout Cheshire East!
The Carers Wellbeing Programme will help you care with confidence.
When you are caring for someone, it can be difficult to get time to care for yourself, but looking after your own health and wellbeing will benefit you and the person you are caring for.
The Carers Wellbeing Programme aims to improve carers health and wellbeing through a series of FREE PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS that will help you to look after yourself, care with confidence, know where to get support when required and Be able to care for as long as you feel able. It also gives you "time out" from your caring role and the chance to socialise, chat and meet other carers in a friendly atmosphere! We hope this could be the start of a regular Carers Social Group in Chelford!
Specially trained people from different organisations will be popping into the sessions to talk about things such as keeping well, adaptations in the home, care planning, falls prevention, benefits and entitlements and relaxation.
WHEN ARE THE SESSIONS?
They start on Monday 2nd October 11am to 2pm and continue on Mondays for 5 weeks.
WHERE ARE THE SESSIONS ?
Chelford Community Hub, Elmstead Road, Chelford
They are free!
WHAT ABOUT CARE FOR THE PERSON I CARE FOR TO ALLOW ME TO ATTEND?
You may be able to get funding for someone to care or sit with the person you care for, or we can perhaps arrange help through Connecting Chelford (Befriending Scheme)
