Carers Update

Carers Support Group

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. Let’s hope 2015 will be a good year for everyone. A 2015 carers programme is now been compiled and you should all receive a copy very soon.

The cares group continues to flourish. Carers pamper days continue to be very popular with all carers. In November 2014 another carers pamper day was held which consisted of a range of therapies. Aromatherapy massages by Tan, chiropody treatments by Claire and pedicures kindly provided by Joscie. A Decoupage Christmas workshop ran throughout the day, my thanks, to Kathryn, who prepared and planned this workshop for all the carers to enjoy. A Chinese buffet was served and enjoyed by all who attended. Further pamper days are planned for this year in February, May, August and November.

September 2014 the annual Carers holiday was a great success. Carers once again enjoyed the splendour of Littlecote House taking advantage of the leisure facilities and beautiful grounds. Several days out was arranged, a relaxing boat trip along the Kennet and Avon canal, and a trip to Beale park zoo/wildlife Park near Reading.

Carers meetings continue to be held in Paul’s Place activity room and a weekly Carers Surgery remains available for Carers to discuss or share their concerns in a private, confidential setting, on a one to one basis.

If you would like to attend any Carers events, please give me a call on 01454-777236 to book.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Take care

Sheila
