Our next get-together will be on
Saturday 2nd December at 10am
Academic Centre Maidstone Hospital
(As usual parking will be free for Headstart members)
Please come along with your friends and family members with you, to join in
with the quiz, the raffle and enjoy a tea or a coffee with some nice nibbles, whilst
you chat with old and maybe some new friends.
As yet there are no plans for a guest speaker, but I will keep you updated on this
if there is to be one.
Head & Neck Cancer health professionals are placing more and 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 completed, well that is the end of that. However it doesn’t always work out 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 page to play the videos. We think you will find them most interesting.
