The concept may be simple but the results have been greatly appreciated, a relaxed walk through Burden Park in Springvale followed by a coffee and a chat at a nearby café. Carers have the chance to socialise and share information and each month the group hear from a local service relevant to supporting families and carers.
8 carers of people living with disability attended the first walk last week with a resoundingly positive response. Specific outcomes of newly the formed walking group include a welcome moment of respite and mindfulness for a community that often has to put the needs of others before their own wellbeing. In coordinating and supporting the walking group carers are offered an opportunity to set some designated time aside to concentrate on themselves, as well as connect and share their caring experiences with others.
If you are interested in taking part the next walk is on Wednesday March 20th.
It's free to take part and everyone is welcome!
