Complementary therapies for carers

Complementary therapies for carers

Helping carers to relax and re-charge

We offer a range of relaxing complementary therapies to carers, who may want to ease the aches and tensions that can come from caring for a loved one, or who simply need a bit of much needed 'me time'. 
As the main care-giver, it is very important to look after yourself.  Looking after someone can have a major impact on your emotional and physical wellbeing. Many carers report various aches and pains throughout their bodies because of the extra physical strain that caring often brings. Exhaustion and tension are also common. Receiving a complementary therapy can help relax your mind and body. Having time out from the caring role to re-charge your batteries can make a real difference.
In addition to complementary therapies for carers, we also run regular Pamper Days throughout the year which you may like to attend. Here you can receive a number of complementary therapies as well as other treatments such as manicures, hairdressing, barbering and much more.

How to be referred
To access any of North Devon Hospice's care and support, please ask your GP to make a referral to North Devon Hospice.  If you are already under hospice care, please speak to one of the team about accessing complementary therapies.

Service location
We have dedicated complementary therapy rooms at our main site at Deer Park, which is on the outskirts of Barnstaple, and also at The Long House, our outreach centre in Holsworthy.

Transport

For those who would find it difficult to travel to our main site at Deer Park in Barnstaple or The Long House in Holsworthy, our team of volunteer drivers are usually available to provide transport. All our services, including transport, are provided completely free of charge.
