Carers Centre Tower Hamlets

Hello Everyone

I know I keep mentioning the weather lately but its that time of year, so snow is predicted this weekend.  Not sure how bad it is going to be, but you can never be too careful.  So if you do have to leave home, wrap up warm, always wear a mask, be careful when walking and have a lovely hot chocolate when you return home or buy one, 


Weekly Activities

 

Shared Reading for Carers – Monday’s @ 11am to 12 noon

This weekly group helps carers to take time out of their busy schedules and listen to a story or poem being read.  You can contribute your thoughts as we delve a little deeper into the story or you can just sit an absorb the words.

Stretch/Self Massage with Casey – Thursday’s @ 11am to 12 noon

This weekly session helps you stretch, keep your body mobile, help with balance, get your blood pumping.  There is also a chance to learn how to massage your own body, treat yourself with oils you can make at home.  Carers have reported that it has helped them relax, feel less stressed and calmer.

Shadowing Boxing & Mindfulness – Friday’s @ 11am to 12 noon

It’s more important than ever to look after your physical and mental wellbeing. Boxing & Mindfulness allows you to do a tailored workout in your own home using fun and simple boxing techniques. It’s available to all abilities and once we have done the boxing, we then wind down into a relaxing meditation session where you can learn to completely switch off.
