Support for relatives and carers

Support for relatives and carers

A cancer diagnosis can have a huge impact on a patient’s family or carer, which is why we offer a range of support which they can also freely access.  These services include:

  • Patient’s partners or children can access the counselling service. For more information please see the Counselling Service page.
  • Family members and carers have free access to drop-in to the centre for support or information.
  • Family members and carers can access complementary therapies (up to 6 sessions).
  • Family members and carers can access a variety of workshops, including Mindfulness, Tapping, Energy, Singing, and ‘Strummin & Hummin’. We are always looking to introduce new workshops at the centre so please speak to one of our volunteers for the latest information about the workshops available.
  • Family members and carers can access weekly yoga classes on Mondays at 1.30pm and 2.45pm. Booking is required.

Devon Carers is a local charity offering support to carers across Devon.  Please watch this short video for some more information about the services they offer. You can self-refer to Devon Carers here.
