Driemaster organizes self-care and relaxation training for informal caregivers in De Spreng, Kerkstraat 50 in Oude Wetering.
This free, three-session training focuses on how to take good care of yourself as a caregiver. When you structurally care for another person, it is important that you pay adequate attention and take good care of yourself. In practice, this is the main challenge and overload is latent.
Dates are May 17, May 31, and June 14 from 10 am to 11:30 am. The course leader is a non-formal care counselor and also yoga teacher Nidra Wendy Ndirind from De Driemaster. You can register via [email protected] or call De Driemaster 0172-427544.
