Another successful Carers and Grandparents Retreat

  • Posted on 25 May 2015

Recently we held another retreat day for Carers and Grandparents. The theme was based on the “Well of Life” and how we manage when our resources and supports are drying up.

Over 20 people participated, sharing their personal experience of being a parent or grandparent caring for a child with a disability.

Their story of loss – loss of partners, parents, friends, of grief, the emotional turmoil they experience and the unconditional love of “caring” certainly brought the group together knowing they were not alone.

The day covered topics of resilience, staying flexible, the importance of being connected to others, strength and courage, meditation and caring for self.
