Carers Days are a regular feature of the Drumalis programme. During these days men and women who devote their lives and energies to caring for a loved one at home are given the opportunity to have “a day out,” a day where they are cared for themselves, where they are pampered, and offered relaxation session and therapies. These days are organised by various Health and Social Services Boards and are a wonderful opportunity for the carers to recharge their batteries and return to their home with renewed energy and commitment. To find out if any days are offered by your health board, please contact the Carers Coordinator in your area.
