Fatigue management course to take place in Brechin

Have your say

A new free self management course to help people manage their tiredness and fatigue is due to start in Brechin on Wednesday, April 17.

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 little or no energy and find it difficult to do simple, everyday things that are taken for granted by others.

The two hour sessions will run from 11 a.m., until 1 p.m., and 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, to help them manage their own fatigue and live as well as possible. It is an interactive programme where participants will learn from each other and share tips for coping with tiredness.

There are limited places on this programme so booking is essential.
