Monday 25th February - Monday 18th March, 10.00am - for four weeks. 

The Positive Caring course is a four-week course for people who are caring for a loved one or friend with a life-limiting illness. 

The aim of the course is to help carers gain support, access useful information and meet others to share their experiences.

The session will run from 10.00am - 1pm, with refreshments.

We'll cover:

  • What it means to be a carer
  • Managing emotions and stress
  • The practicalities of caring 
  • Looking after yourself
  • Juggling caring with other demands
  • Finances and resources
  • Communicating with others, including professionals 

Feedback from previous participants has been very positive, especially the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation and to learn more about the services and support available in Gloucestershire.
