Station Road

About

Meets on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 2:30 - 4pm at Countesthorpe Village Hall. The usual leader is Gurjit. Refreshments are provided and there is lots of free car parking. Small donations accepted on a voluntary basis.

This group is just for carers, giving them the chance to be honest about their caring roles without feeling inhibited. Why not come along and meet others in similar situations to you in a supportive, friendly environment. Guest speakers are frequently arranged and sometimes there is a raffle.

If you can’t make the face to face group why not attend the Blaby Zoom group on the 1st Thursday of each month, 7-8pm, giving you the opportunity to meet up with other carers from the comfort of your own home.

About

Online Arthritis Action Groups
https:/www.arthritisaction.org.uk/media-centre/events/
We are pleased to announce we are running Arthritis Action Group meetings online via Zoom, including a group for Leicestershire. The meetings are a way to connect with other people with arthritis, share experiences and tips, and support each other. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced How To guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.

Arthritis appropriate Exercise Videos
https://www.arthritisaction.org.uk/living-with-arthritis/resource-centre/exercises/
Many people living with a long-term health condition find it difficult to attend exercise classes. To help them, Arthritis Action recently launched a series of online chair based exercises developed with the aim of helping those with hip, knee or spinal Osteoarthritis more mobile and active.

Self-Management Resource

We also have video resources exploring different elements of self-management, including pain management, distraction techniques and pacing.
