Funded by the National Lottery, this is a 4 year project to support Carers across Essex, including Southend and Thurrock.
We asked Carers and Professionals what would most help Carers, the answers:
- Get the message across that Carers are as important as the loved one they care for, that they need to take breaks and keep their own interests and identity.
- Look at straightforward ways to manage day-to-day stress
- Provide events outdoors
- Provide relaxing complementary therapies, eg massage and reflexology
- Provide activites that are free and local
CURRENT SESSIONS and THERAPIES:
(Understanding stress – learning easy, quick techniques to apply at home)
(For all abilities, with a mindful practitioner to get the most from our beautiful Essex countryside)
Managing Emotions Effectively
Afternoon tea in beautiful places
Workshop for all abilities
And much more is being planned
