Free health course set to start in Forfar

A NEW free self management course to help people manage their tiredness and fatigue starts on Tuesday, October 9, in Forfar.

Held at Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre the five-week Fatigue Management Programme is aimed at people who experience excessive tiredness or exhaustion, all or most of the time to help them have a better quality of life.

Fatigue is experienced by many people with long-term conditions and can have a major impact on daily life. People who have fatigue have no energy and find it difficult to do simple, everyday things that are taken for granted by others.

The two hour sessions will be led by staff from Angus Community Health Partnership’s occupational therapy department.

At each session occupational therapists will provide practical ideas and suggestions to help people understand more about fatigue and its effect on their lives, helping people to manage their own fatigue to live as well as possible.

It is an interactive programme where participants will learn from each other and share tips for coping with tiredness.

The programme will run weekly from 3pm until 5pm at Whitehills starting on Tuesday, October 9 and will run until November 6. There are limited places on this programme so booking is essential.

The dates for the course are Tuesday, October 16; Tuesday, October 26; Tuesday, October 30 and Tuesday, November 6.
