Health & Wellbeing

Unfortunately caring can take its toll on the physical and emotional wellbeing of carers and we therefore provide a range of activities that support carers’ health & wellbeing.

We would encourage carers to inform their GP about their caring role and any health issues that may arise from this.

Upcoming events will be listed in the upcoming events section of the website, but recent examples include:

  • 1:1 Stress Management sessions
  • 1:1 Cognitive Behaviour sessions
  • Relaxation
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness
  • Walking Groups
  • Group Stress Management
  • Aromatherapies

We also facilitate peer support groups which give carers the chance to meet other carers in similar situations and have a coffee and chat about anything from caring to Corrie.

There is also lots of activities going on throughout East Renfrewshire in places like libraries, community groups and church halls that support carers’ wellbeing and we will do our best to signpost you to the right support for you.
