EVENT OVERVIEW

Book your place here
Tuesdays
2-4pm
St Christopher's CARE

Starting Tuesday 17 May for 4 weeks

Are you caring for someone who’s approaching the end of life?

Would you like to meet other people in the same situation, so you feel more supported and better prepared?

We’ve developed this four-week in-person course after consulting carers and it’s designed for people to share experiences, build confidence and learn new skills, making it feel more comfortable to talk about death, dying and loss. We’re committed to building a resilient and self-sustaining community of carers and everyone is welcome. Running on Tuesday’s between 2-4pm, these sessions offer carers an opportunity for discussion, building and developing confidence and getting to know others.

You are welcome to attend whichever sessions feel most helpful to you.

Topics

17 May: Carers’ experience

24 May: Networks of support

31 May: The dying process

7 June: Important conversations

Outline

Our goal is to support people to feel better prepared for the death of the person they’re caring for, supported by the wider community and more confident and comfortable dealing with and discussing death, dying and loss.

We’ve created a programme based on consultation with carers and it includes discussions, workshops, formal learning and peer support – learning from others in a similar situation.

We want to normalise the caring experience – helping carers understand they’re not alone, learn key skills from each other and know when to ask for help. Because only those who care really know what it involves and what it feels like.

For those wanting to dive a little deeper into these subjects, spend more time getting to know other carers and further developing their confidence, these sessions are perfect for you.
