Carers' Week brings patients, families and Carers 'closer together'

Darren James-Hughes welcomes his mum Sandra to Greenways Unit for Carers Week.

LOCAL Mental Health Services celebrated Carers' Week with a series of events to bring patients, families and Carers closer together.  Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP) NHS Foundation Trust hosted events in Macclesfield, Trafford, Chester and Wirral to raise awareness of the important role hundreds of Carers play across the Region. The Trust staffed a Carers' 'Info and Advice' stand at Trafford Carers' Centre, Carers in Chester were treated to 'Mindfulness' sessions and The Wirral Eating Disorder Service launched new training with a 'Carers' Workshop' for all attendees. Inpatient units also held 'Afternoon Tea', where patients thanked Carers by welcoming them to the ward and showcasing their creative skills.  Darren James Hughes, 25, from Chester has been a patient at Greenways Assessment and Treatment Unit in Macclesfield for the last 6 months. Darren said:- "Carers' Week has been great as I've been able to take my family around the ward and show them the fantastic work that we do with the team here. I like it here. The staff are so caring. But it's even better to have your loved ones with you on the ward."

Siobain Peters, Occupational Therapist at CWP, said:- "Friends, family and Carers are very important to our service users, as well as our volunteer visits. I'm pleased that we've used Carers' Week to bring everyone closer together. Our wards and departments provide a range of activities for patients, from sports and music to arts and crafts. Events this week have allowed service users to share their work and interests with the people that matter most to them."

Carers' Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that Carers face and recognise the contribution Carers make to families and communities throughout the UK.
