Do you look after an adult who couldn’t manage without your help?  You may be an unpaid carer!

A carer is a person who provides unpaid care and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who is disabled, has an illness or long-term condition, or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Would you like to learn some hints, tips and strategies on how to cope as a carer?

In this live, real-time Zoom session we will:

Part 1

Look at self-care covering eating, exercise, sleep, alcohol and smoking

Give advice on being organised, rewarding yourself, taking time for yourself (and why not to feel guilty about it)

Talk about getting the best out of the NHS and other sources of practical help

Part 2

Chat about coping mentally and emotionally Discuss feelings of guilt, resentment, anger, negativity, loneliness, loss (of the person they were before and the future you thought you were going to have).

Talk about accepting help and advice on managing unhelpful suggestions (not just saying I am fine)
