Support in Swanley

News   •   Jan 06, 2017 11:15 GMT

We are launching our popular Carers Course in Swanley (at Swanley Link) from Saturday 14 January. The course offers a useful programme of information, guidance and practical help for people caring for someone with a life-limiting illness and is run jointly with Carers First. It’s open to anyone who is a carer – not just carers of ellenor patients.

Sessions are (all Saturdays):

14 Jan: How does it feel to be a carer?

21 Jan: Practicalities – equipment, wheelchairs, moving and handling

28 Jan: Financial support – what help are you entitled to?

4 Feb: The dying process – what happens as we reach end of life?

11 Feb: Nutrition – how to cope with reduced appetite

18 Feb: Open session – moving forward in your caring role

You do not have to attend all of the six sessions, but pre-booked is encouraged. Anyone who is concerned about leaving the person they care for to attend is encouraged to call, so that options can be explored.

To sign-up, please call Sarah Green on tel: 01474 320007 or email:
