Care for Carers Stepping Out Short Residential Respite Breaks for Carers
The breaks incorporate, educational, therapeutic, emotional and social support for carers. Although the weekend is full of organised activities carers are welcome to feel free and use the time away as they want to.
Workshops will vary depending on the break but could include some physical activity such as Tai Chi and emotional support such as Confidence Building, Relaxation, and Stress Management, or Food and Nutrition, Astronomy and Space Science, Singing, or Arts and Crafts. There are often trips to places of interest and plenty of time to socialise.
Breaks are open to carers to apply from across Scotland.
