– Planning for Tomorrow

17/02/2022 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Friends Meeting House, Friargate, York, YO1 9RL

In January we will be holding a new course for carers who would like information and support around an area which isn’t talked about much; what to consider when thinking about a caring role coming to an end and the loss of the person cared for.

The sessions will offer:

  • Time and space to discuss this often difficult area.
  • Legal, financial and practical information concerning end of life care.
  • Discussion and involvement from relevant services who have information and experience to share.
  • Considering life after a caring role and how it might be.

The aim of the course is to enable more confidence, choice and ease of mind in managing at a challenging time.

Throughout the sessions there will be opportunities to arrange individual conversations with a member of York Carers Centre staff.

What will we cover at each session:

  • Thursday 13 January – come along for a cup of tea and a chat, and an opportunity to meet other carers and the staff involved and to flag up areas you would like to explore in the course.
  • Thursday 27 January – Coping with change and end of life; self-care for the carer.
  • Thursday 10 February – What legal, financial and practical supports are available.
  • Thursday 17 February – Understanding loss and preparing for end of life care.
  • Thursday 3 March – Considering your own way forward and making a personal support plan covering all areas.

When and where:

Friends Meeting House, Friargate

  • From 10 to 11am on Thursday 13 January – Introductory session
