Cake and a summer walk
Posted on Sep 16 2019 by Bobbie Kelly
Thursday 12 September 2019 marked the first birthday of the opening of our Carers Centre, and we celebrated with a walk around our grounds, before holding a tea party for our patients’ family and friends.
Eleven carers attended the event on Saturday, which featured a special birthday cake made by Workbridge.
As a charity, we are committed to supporting and involving carers in all aspects of care and planning where possible. The carers, families and friends of the patients in our care are vitally important to their loved one’s recovery and we know how important it is to listen, support and work together.
Following feedback from carers, our Carers' Centre was opened to reflect that commitment. Its main aim is to create a quiet space, dedicated to carers.
Rebecca Amena, our Carers Engagement Lead, explained: “Our Carers Centre offers a “home from home” where carers can pop in have a cuppa, a chat and a bit of respite. Our friendly team are always on hand to talk, offer support, guidance and can signpost to more specialised support, tailored to meet the individual needs and requirements.”
If you would like to find out more about our Carers Centre and the support we can offer families and friends, telephone 01604 616125 or email: email@example.com. The Centre is open Monday to Friday 10am - 6pm, and at weekends 10am – 5:30pm.
