Scarborough-based carers are invited to a series of free 2-hour ‘Caring with Confidence’ courses on Wednesday mornings to recognise their skills, experience and knowledge and have fun with other carers. Carers can attend just one or all of the sessions but do need to book.
Sessions include mindfulness and relaxation, benefits advice, self-care, communication skills, basic first-aid skills and stress and coping.
A carer is someone that spends time looking aftera member of their family or a friend when they have an illness, condition, disablity or are elderly. This also includes mental health illness and difficulties arising from substance misuse.
Scarborough: Jan 24, Feb 7 and 21, Mar 7 and 14, 10-12 noon, Scarborough Dial-a-Ride, Londesborough Road.
