A session which has developed from the longer Caring with Confidence course in response to carer requests for more support on juggling caring responsibilities with personal stress. This 2 hour workshop looks at managing specific elements of caring such as dealing with medication and identifying stress factors and symptoms. It aims to support carers in sharing experiences and offer a few possible coping mechanisms to take away.
Each of the above sessions will be offered to carers in various locations across the county and an ongoing rolling programme is being developed. Carers Northumberland would always like to hear from you if :
- You have an interest in finding out more or attending any of the sessions
- You think there is an aspect of caring that is common to carers and which would be of benefit to explore in more depth in a session
- You have a venue near you that you think would make a good place to put on one of our sessions so that other carers from the same area could attend
