Have your say

A new free self management course to help people manage their tiredness and fatigue starts on Wednesday, August 22 in Montrose.

Held in the Links Health 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. The programme will run weekly from 11am until 1pm at the Links Health Centre starting next Wednesday and will run throughout September. The dates are Wednesday, September 5; Wednesday, September 12; Wednesday, September 19 and Wednesday, September 26.

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.
