CARERS can be on the receiving end of care, as a hospice announces regular sessions to support those who look after someone else.
The Myton Hospices is welcoming people who care for a family member, friend, or neighbour to chat to experienced staff and volunteers, and meet people who might be in a similar position.
Rugby Day Hospice sister Camilla Lines said: “These sessions are a chance for carers to meet other carers to share experiences and chat – and we want to find out what matters to them.
“Carers are so important to the people they are looking after and they need support too. It’s a safe and informal environment and those who attend will have people who understand what they do on hand to talk to.”
The sessions take place between 10am and midday on the second Monday of every month, beginning on Monday (March 12).
The sessions are free to attend, and take place at Myton’s Rugby Day Hospice (on the left at the entrance to the grounds of St Cross Hospital, with free parking). Booking is not necessary and carers can bring the people they care for.
