Carers Trust East Midlands are committed to improving and supporting Carers Health and Well Being. We understand first-hand how demanding, both physically and mentally, the day-to-day challenges of the role of being a Carer, despite how rewarding being a Carer can be.
Carers Trust are able to offer a range of services to support Carer Health and Wellbeing. This includes providing information and support to Carers who may be facing challenges to their own Mental Health and wellbeing, for example, if you are experiencing mild anxiety or depression.
We offer free access to a range of Health and Wellbeing centres across the county so the Carer can take a valuable break away and have some time for themselves. The Carer can enjoy a range of activities or simply relax with a gentle swim and sauna. Please click here to see a list of our leisure centres in Nottinghamshire.
In addition to the well-being centres, Complementary therapies can also be beneficial to aid relaxation and promote health and well-being. This can include treatments such as Reiki, Indian Head Massage and Reflexology.
