Module 1: Dealing with stress

While being a carer can be rewarding it can also be stressful. In doing this module you will gain a better understanding of stress, its causes and your options for dealing with it.

What is respite

‘Respite’ or ‘respite care’ is when someone else takes care of the person you care for, so that you can have a break. A break can give you time to do everyday activities, deal with stress and look after yourself. When you are a carer, it’s important to regularly take time for yourself to rest and recharge.
