St Vincent’s Hospice is offering a six-week informal course for people caring for someone with a life-limiting illness.

The course will focus on giving carers advice on different practical issues and there will also be plenty of time for tea/coffee and a chat with people in a similar situation.


The group will start later this month (September 2016) on a Wednesday afternoon from 1.30pm to 3pm. It will be held in the Day Hospice area within St Vincent’s Hospice.

Week 1 – Meet the staff and introduction
Week 2 – Advice on personal care
Week 3- Financial and benefit advice
Week 4 – Basic moving and handling advice
Week 5 – Advice on equipment to make life easier
Week 6 – Looking after yourself and any other issues.
