Wellness support day

Run on a Monday from our Community Cottage the Wellness support day aims to

maximise the quality of a person's living by creating a safe environment to be in, enjoying complementary therapies, relaxing and unwinding.

 

Therapies include

Relaxation                          Friendship                   

creative activies                Emotional and spiritual support

Reiki                                   Gentle chair exercises

 

Complementary therapies

Work alongside conventional medical treatments.  They promote feelings of relaxation, wellbeing and can also help with emotional and physical symptoms.  All our therapies are gentle, safe and are adapted for use in pallative care.

Often when someone is going through a palliative illness they can feel alone and isolated even when they are surrounded by loved ones.  We find that our once a week get togethers help people to realise they are not the only ones going through the same emotions

The wellness Day is an informal get together in a non-threatening, relaxing environment.  Friendships are built, laughter is frequent and everyone can't wait until the next time.

Relaxation

Is used to help relax your body and mind.
