Carer Health Trainer

Are you looking after someone but want to get healthier?

The Carer Health Trainer service is currently available for adult carers who are looking after someone with long term illness or dementia and who live in, or are registered with a GP in the South, City and East Cambridgeshire areas.

Our Carer Health Trainer has both personal and professional experience in caring and is aware that keeping yourself healthy can be difficult whilst caring for someone. Caring can be very rewarding but we understand it can have a detrimental impact on your own health. Our Carer Health Trainer has a wealth of training and expertise to guide and support you to lead a healthier life.

If you would like to improve your health and wellbeing, we can work with you to make changes that could make a real impact to your daily lifestyle, however big or small. With 1-2-1 support there will be no looking back.

How will a Carer Health Trainer help?

With this service you will be assigned your own Carer Health Trainer who will help you to set realistic, health related goals. They will offer support and understanding every step of the way. Your Health Trainer will work with you to find out what changes you could make and, with 6 sessions of healthy lifestyle support, they can help you with many elements of your health such as;

  • Healthy eating
  • Losing weight
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Reducing stress

Who can get healthy with us?

Any family cares who are looking after someone with long term illness or dementia who lives in, or is registered with a GP in, the South, East or City of Cambridgeshire who wants to make a healthy lifestyle change.
