Self Care for Carers is Ireland’s leading training organisation helping caregivers to stay well in their life and work. Compassion Fatigue is very common in caregiving roles. We teach you how to thrive in your own life as you give your best to those you are care for.
We work with staff in a variety of social and healthcare areas such as ED, oncology, palliative care, elder care, addiction, social work, occupational therapy etc. We specialise in training staff in body wellness practices which lower anxiety and arousal symptoms which can be characteristic of secondary stress. Our programmes have been proven to reduce sick leave in some teams.
