    Relaxation and Pamper day in Derby city

    Carers week kicked off in Derbyshire with a relaxation and pamper day for Carers in Derby city.

    The carers enjoyed workshops aimed at promoting self-care.

    They engaged in a guided meditation to help calm the mind and an aromatherapy workshop where they created their tailored essential oil blends to help energise or relax, taking away with them a roller ball bottle and bath salts to help aid self-care.

    One of the Carers Pauline has this to say about the day “All the staff were very nice and helpful, soap making was my favourite activity as I learnt a new skill which was fabulous, the food and venue was very good and the massage was nice too”
