Date: 26 Oct 2017 - 10:00 to 12:00
Location: St Christopher's Hospice, 51-59 Lawrie Park Road, Sydenham London, SE26 6DZ

Are you a caregiver, ex-caregiver, or spend a few hours or more a week caring for someone you love? The Innovation Unit want to talk to you!

The Innovation Unit is working with St Christopher's Hospice to research how caregivers and supporters of a person who is dying can be better supported at the end of life. They are holding a workshop to test some coaching tools that ex-carers can use to coach existing carers in a new service called Coach4care.

You can help to improve the experience of supporting someone at the end of their life

What will the workshop involve?
• Testing and developing coaching tools that ex-carers can use to help other carers
• You will be able to change and adapt existing tools and create new ones.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided!

Who are they looking for?
Caregivers /ex-caregivers of someone who is dying: a caregiver is defined as someone who provides 2 or more hours of support a week to someone who is dying.

Are you interested?

What is Coach4Care?

Anyone who is caring for a loved one who is dying learns a lot about how to care. What is challenging is sustaining energy and resilience throughout the caring journey so people can give the best possible care to their loved ones. Coach4care helps caregivers through coaching to help them reflect on their situation and take action to improve their well-being and the well-being of those they care for. Caregivers are believed to know their situation best; that they will learn best from reflecting on their own experience rather than being given advice. They also have the best chance of coming up with solutions that will work for them and our coaches are there to help unlock the answers within them.
