Carers invited to enjoy ‘me time’

Carers who have loved ones who use our Doncaster Hospice’s services are being invited to enjoy some ‘me time.’

Called ‘Time for You,’ a drop in day is being held at St John’s Hospice, off Weston Road, Balby.

The session, which will be held on July 25th from 10am until 3pm, offers carers the chance to unwind with a massage or reflexology, take part in group relaxation, and other activities including arts and crafts. There is also the chance to visit the hairdressers (this is charged at a reduced rate) and  also support on accessing other services.

Joanne Brooks, Hospice Sister, said: “Carers work really hard looking after a loved one – many of them 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and they deserve a bit of ‘me time.’ We hope that by attending our drop in day it will help them to find time to relax, think about themselves for a few hours, and have other carers to talk to.”

If you are a carer of a patient who attends the hospice in Doncaster and you want more information please contact Day Hospice nursing staff on 01302 798472, alternatively drop into the day on July 25.
