With the daily commitment that carers have for their ‘cared for’, life can be stressful at times and a carer’s own wellbeing can suffer. This day is about giving something back to them, as carers need to be well to care well.
Whether it’s socialising with other carers, getting the buzz out of trying something new, learning a new relaxation technique or feeling more confident from being better informed, the Carers Wellbeing Day programme will be looking holistically at what brings ‘wellbeing’.
Around 20+ local organisations at the staffed ‘Information Marketplace’ will on hand to answer visitors’ questions, and ‘Wellbeing Workshops’ will cover a range of topics, as varied as discovering the therapeutic benefits of gardening, drawing, first-aid at home, yoga, a guided walk around York House gardens, a legal ‘clinic’, and managing your finances.
Carers Wellbeing Day is supported by Richmond Parish Lands Charity.
