Advice on carers issues
“The Health Fair For Carers is a hugely important event in the Rhondda Cynon Taf calendar and we want to encourage as many carers as possible to attend and enjoy the whole range of activities on offer.
“Whilst caring for someone, particularly someone you love, can be very rewarding, it is also very demanding, stressful and tiring. In Rhondda Cynon Taf we try to recognise and value the care provided by carers and support them as much as possible.
“That is why events such as this are so important for they allow carers to relax and enjoy themselves away from what can often be very demanding responsibilities.”
Health Fair for Carers will take place on October 5th 2013 at Michael Sobell Sports Centre, Aberdare from 10am to 3pm. Lunch will be provided.
