Dove House is here to help and support people living with life limiting and terminal illnesses, but it is also here for the people who are caring for them. Caring for someone you love can be a rewarding and fulfilling thing to do, but it can also bring feelings of exhaustion, loneliness and a sense of guilt when making time for yourself. This is where Dove House can help you.
Our Carer Wellbeing Days are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month here at the hospice, where people who are caring for a loved one come along for a bit of fun and relaxation, have a chance to talk to others who are also caring for family members, and to find out if there is any more help out there that can ease what can be an exhausting and worrying time. There are opportunities to enjoy a relaxing complementary therapy treatment, have a light lunch or spend time in our beautiful gardens, all things that will help recharge those batteries. It is also a good opportunity to find out about all the other services Dove House has to offer.

If you feel you cannot leave the person you are caring for, you can bring them along and our experienced carers will look after them, while you have a well earned break.

If you would like to talk someone about how you are feeling, or would like more information about our Carer Wellbeing Days, we are here to help.  Don’t forget, the person you are caring for wants you to be ok too.
