Do you currently have or are likely to have responsibilities as a carer for elderly parents/relatives?
Would it be useful to have a strategy for managing the physical, mental and emotional stress of caring for elderly parents /relatives, and how this can impact on your performance at work?
Have you got the right resources for juggling the responsibilities of a carer with your career plans?
Life expectancy continues to increase and 75% of people over the age of 65 are likely to endure some form of major illness such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, or Cardiac Conditions. All of these can significantly affect physical and mental functioning with the sufferer requiring daily care. 42% of the 3.4 million carers in the UK are male.
More than 80% of carers acknowledge that a caring role impacts on their health, 20% of carers need to give up employment, and on average carers retire eight years early.
If you already hold caring responsibilities for an elderly relative, or can foresee these in the not too distant future this our Corporate Carers workshop will equip you with:
Guidelines to identify signs of common elderly illness such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease and Stroke
Resources for carers and how to set boundaries
Tips and techniques for developing emotional, psychological and physical well-being to ensure your performance at work and career plans remain at an optimum
