We are launching an exciting new day therapy service in Caithness from next Wednesday (10th April 2019.)
Live and Learn Caithness is an informal drop-in service available to anyone affected by a life-limiting or long-term health condition. This includes families, carers and people who have been bereaved. It provides an opportunity to meet people in a similar circumstance and gain informal support from healthcare professionals.
The drop-in sessions take place on the second Wednesday of each month between 11am and 3pm, in the Pultney Centre, Wick. Anyone can drop in throughout the day.
There is no need for a referral to attend Live and Learn. Each drop-in day there will be a range of sessions on offer, which may include relaxation, a creative activity and an informal education session covering topics such as managing symptoms, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and feeling good.
Local Caithness health professionals and Highland Hospice staff will be on hand to offer general advice and signposting to other sources of information and support.
Tea, coffee and cake will be available throughout the day, and people may decide to take part in one or more of the group activities or simply pop in for a chat.
Alongside this, 'Living Well Caithness' , access to which is by referral only, will be running on the fourth Wednesday of every month in the Lyth Arts Centre. This service is designed to support people with an advancing life-limiting condition, who would beneﬁt from specialist palliative care input. Attendees of this are also welcome to attend the 'Live and Learn Caithness' sessions.
