Carers Wellbeing Cafe Open 19th Oct

The next block of our Carers Wellbeing Cafe opens up on 19th October.

This group is free to carers and cared for people from the Falkirk area who have a sensory condition. Meeting each Thursday from 12pm to 2:20pm the group has activities, talks and outings across the area and always recieves a healthy lunch of a sandwich and fresh homemadse soup from our Cafe.

This group is supported by NHS Forth Valley Health and Social Care Partnership and aims to help carers and cared for people live healthier, reduce stress and meet other people in similar situations to make friends and socialise.

In the last block, the group enjoyed trips to the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway as well as sailing on the canal with Seagull Trust.

Groups and Activities Coordinator, Brenda Whyte said:

“This is a really fund and friendly group. It has gathered new members we have gone along and is something people look forward to.

“It really makes a difference that cared for people can attend with their carers because it provides a safe environment and also something different that both can enjoy.”

 

The trip to Seagull trust was so nice that one of the group, Keith who uses a wheelchair and attends with his mum, wrote us a great postcard to say thank you. If you would be interested in joining the next sessions, please contact Brenda at the Centre 01324 590 888 or email brendawhyte@forthvalleysensorycentre.org
