Physical activity for health and wellbeing in the caring role

8 Summary of Session 1

Having completed this first session ‘Understanding the demands of the caring role’ you should now have more of an understanding of the duties provided by carers, together with the potential impact of caring on physical and mental health. Furthermore, you have considered how these factors might impact upon the caring role, and on the carer’s life more widely.

In Session 2, you will explore how physical activity can provide the carer with improved physical and mental health as an effective, individualised and flexible strategy to support carers in their role.

You can now go to Session 2 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   when you are ready.
