Carers’ Support Group

Our popular monthly Carers’ Support Sessions are held in The Mill cafe in the grounds of St Catherine’s Park in Lostock Hall.

Open to all carers, not just those with a connection to St Catherine’s; our carers’ drop-in sessions are held on the first Tuesday of every month from 1.30pm until 3.30pm, to meet for a coffee and chat with other carers and our Support Team.

Please email supportteam@stcatherines.co.uk if you would like to join.

Here’s what carers say about our drop-in sessions:

“It makes you feel valued as a carer, because you’re always putting someone else first, so the fact that you’re making time for you is important.”

“I think exchanging notes, sharing ideas and being able to share your own experiences which can benefit somebody else is very important.”

“All of our situations are different, and I think the diverse range of experiences people have within the group is really useful.” 

“For me it’s about getting out of the house and making two hours for yourself each week, because sometimes it’s hard to make that effort for yourself.”

“It’s a friendly group and there’s always something different to do, whether that’s just sitting and having a chat or having a therapy; I find it really makes a difference to me.”

“The hospice is very welcoming and warm, so I think it’s a great place to come.”
