FIT 2017 Beneficiary UPTREE introducing UPTREE Carers Café
UPTREE, one of the beneficiary organizations from FIT Charity Run 2017, operates a monthly salon (café) for families caring for those in need. UPTREE aims to provide a place where carers can gather to discuss issues faced by those in similar positions and where carers can “be themselves”.
UPTREE’s carers salon is aimed for those who have been diagnosed with dementia and/or cancer and their families as well as siblings of those who are caregiving.
By providing stress management workshops and opportunities to talk with other carers, UPTREE helps carers to regain the balance between caring and self.
We welcome anyone to participate casually.
