Both Pauline Mortimer and Debbie Hannant are wanting to place a little more emphasis on the well being and aftercare of patients once their treatment is over. It’s quite easy to think that once everything has been done and that is the end of it. However it doesn’t quite happen like that. Cancer patients have to maintain their well-being, by ensuring that they continue to look after themselves. Quite recently we had a talk on oral care and fitness techniques to suit all types of people and their abilities. The subject of mindfulness to help our mental attitudes has been discussed, and these themes will continue during the course of the year. It’s extremely important to be aware how important it is to look after one’s mind and body. These techniques and other related topics will be revisited for sure in the coming year.
Ann Payne from the Macmillan Centre in Queen Victoria Hospital has a number of very watchable videos on a number of topics concerning well-being and aftercare . To view them go to our Headstart news pageto play the videos. We think you will find them most interesting.
