Looking After Me - Free Courses For Carers
A free course specifically for those people who care for someone else with a long term health condition. The course is called 'Looking After Me' and helps carers to learn ways in which they can look after their own health needs whilst they are caring for another person and to cope with that caring situation. It also helps develop the confidence for them to take greater control of their lives and it gives an opportunity to meet with others who share similar experiences.
The course is open to any adult who is a carer (they do not need to have a condition themsleves to attend this course). It is run in the local community and is led by two volunteer tutors who themselves have experience of caring.
