Self care packs

Five packs have been developed for stroke, dementia, heart failure, asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

They have been developed for the person with the condition and are designed to support and empower people to feel more confident about self care, maintaining independence, control and responsibility. The can also be used by carers for that person.

You can find more information about support for yourself and self care on our social care page.

Self Care Week 2017

People across Bradford and Craven are being urged to take up the Make One Change challenge for this year’s Self Care week from 13 to 19 November.

By taking part in the challenge, it is hoped people will be empowered to take control of their health and wellbeing and feel better for making a change.

The changes are meant to be things people can commit to throughout the year, not just during the week. Suggestions for changes people can make include:

  • Cutting down the amount of sugar in your tea and coffee
  • Taking a brisk walk for ten minutes a day
  • Keeping a day alcohol free each week
  • Having an extra portion of fruit and vegetables
  • Reducing or stopping smoking
  • Make time with your friends and family

Making a change is always easier when it’s done together. People are being encouraged to make pledges with family, friends or work colleagues.

A full programme of events and activities will be taking place across Bradford and Craven to help people understand how simple lifestyle choices can make a big difference to their quality of life in the future.
