Carer Education West Dunbartonshire
Carers are often used to looking after others and this can often mean they forget about their own needs and well being. This short programmme helps carers to look after themselves and as a result help them to continue to care for a loved one.
The carer education course is a 6 week course facilitated by two external facilitators. The course covers topics such as stress and communication as well as offering practical advice, emotional and peer support to carers.
We aim to run these courses at least twice per year. Each course offers space to 12 carers.
