Carers and Carers Week Activities
Carer's Week is a week where we recognise the massive contribution our carers make to their families, friends and the NMC community. This year's Carers Week is from 7th - 11th June 2021 and we will have some exciting activities and events for carers. More details will follow soon:
Although we were limited by Covid restrictions in 2020, we still had a number of activities including :
A Carers Podcast where our NMC Community sent special messages or requested a song to say thank you their carers / people who have supported them.
A fun evening of Virtual Bingo.
A group Mindfulness session on Zoom with Kay.
NMC Is Here for Family Members and Carers Too
The NMC Advice Line is still open and there are members of the team available Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm. We are here if you need any support or advice, or just fancy a chat.
Please do not suffer quietly. If you are feeling lonely or down and want someone to talk to then please remember that we are always here to listen.
New Carers Facebook Group
We have started a private group just for our community of Carers. The link to join is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1098624770515572/
We recognise the importance of friendship, community and a reliable and well informed support network and we believe that the carers within our community are one of our biggest assets. We know that you are always there for your loved one(s), so let us be here for you, and (perhaps more importantly) lets be here for each other.
This group is safe space to share your thoughts and concerns and let your voice be heard. It is a place to seek advice from other people who truly understand, a place to share your frustrations and worries, and a place to let your guard down and make new friends.
It is a closed group, so only members can read your posts, and all membership requests must be approved by an admin. As a result, this will be a small, trusted and friendly group of people with a connection to the NMC.
