With the help of some other Carers, Derbyshire Carers Association gained it’s first paid employee in 1989, this has now grown to over 30 dedicated and passionate employees as well as a large number of volunteers.

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”
