Emotional Support for Carers

by Renfrewshire Carers Centre

Health & Social Care Services

Caring can be stressful so we offer support in a number of ways.

Stress management courses - including confidence building, time
management, diet and exercise, positive thinking and complementary
therapies.

Counselling service - offers Carers the chance to work through difficulties in relation to being a Carer and other issues which may hinder their caring role.

Drop-in café - Every Thursday between 10:30am and 1:00pm in the centre.

Listening ear - Staff/volunteers are available if you need someone to talk to who understands and will listen.

Out of Hours telephone helpline (Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm - 9pm.
Sundays 2 - 4pm).

One to one support - We have dedicated workers who offer one to one
support to:

• Parent Carers - Parents of children with any disability, young
person or dependant adult.

• Kinship Carers - family members who have been left with the care
of children whose parents are ill, disabled or have addiction problems and can no longer look after them.

• Carers looking after someone with a mental health issue.

The workers will provide practical information on Carers rights, services
available, information on the illness or disability and provide a listening ear to let you talk through issues and problems you may be facing.
