Care with Confidence
‘Care with Confidence’ information sessions provide opportunities for carers to develop their skills and knowledge to help them in their caring role and build their confidence. The sessions also support and encourage carers to look after their own health and wellbeing.
The sessions are delivered in an informal way that ensures there are opportunities for social interaction and peer support for the carers who attend. In addition, by attending the session the carer is able to have a break from their caring situation for a short period of time.
A regular programme of sessions is provided at the Carers Centre in Falkirk, and Hawkhill Community Centre in Alloa (temporarily halted); most sessions can also be attended from the comfort of your own home using Zoom.
Local carers are given the opportunity to participate in the development of each Care with Confidence programme, which can include a selection from a wide range of topics, such as:
- Residential Care
- Foot Care
- Handling Anxiety
- Welfare Benefits
- Community Care Services
- The Hospital Journey
