Upcoming activities for adult carers

19th May 21

At Caring Together we offer a range of activities for adult carers.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic we have carried on giving carers a range of ways to meet together and ensure that they are able to stay in contact with people in ways that work for them. As well as digital group meetings we also offer different types of one-to-one support. The sessions include a range of activities and talks including exercise and mindfulness, quizzes, guest speakers and more.

You can socialise and get to know other carers, have some fun, develop new skills and make contributions to ‘carer voice’ work – your chance to raise awareness of carers and influence decisions that affect you.

See below for details of sessions available on a one-to-one or group basis.

*More about Mindfulness with dementia and Enerchi:

Mindfulness with dementia

Mindfulness with dementia Zoom sessionMindfulness with Dementia is a course delivered by Don’t Tone Alone CIC that is there to help you feel less stressed and more in control of your emotions and mental well-being. The course provides carers and those they care for with tools to diffuse difficult situations, cultivate positive emotions, and reconnect with themselves and each other. The topics covered in the course involve breathing exercises and an introduction to mindfulness, anchoring, posture and mindful movement, and different ways to meditate. The course is delivered over zoom.

Enerchi

Enerchi is an exercise class that is more of a work-in than a workout. Using mindful movements taken from practices like QiGong and Tai Chi, the session helps you reconnect, re-energise, and recharge your body and mind. The sessions are highly inclusive as they involve gentle movements and last for roughly 50-minutes. (The movements are ideally performed standing but can be adapted for seated positions if necessary). Enerchi takes place over Zoom.
