On Wednesday 5th May 2016, Care for the Carers held our Spring Carers Forum at the International Lawn Tennis Centre in Eastbourne. There were around 70 carers in attendance, making this one of our largest forum events to date.
The theme this time was “Taboo Subjects” – things which carers want to talk about, but find it difficult to do so. In a change to the usual format, carers chose which workshops they would like to participate in, and groups went into sessions which were led by a professional in that area. Available workshops included ‘intimacy and relationships’, ‘care options’, ‘end of life’, and ‘mental health’.
