Fatigue management course in Montrose

A NEW free self-management course to help people cope with tiredness and fatigue starts in Montrose on Wednesday, August 22.

Held in the Links Health Centre, the five-week fatigue management programme is aimed at people who experience excessive tiredness or exhaustion all or most of the time, to help them have a better quality of life.

Fatigue is experienced by many people with long-term conditions and can have a major impact on daily life. Those who suffer from fatigue have no energy and find it difficult to do simple, everyday things that are taken for granted by others.

The two-hour sessions will be led by staff from Angus Community Health Partnership’s occupational therapy department. The programme will run weekly on Wednesdays from 11am until 1pm at the Links Health Centre throughout September.

At each session occupational therapists will provide practical ideas and suggestions to help people understand more about fatigue and its effect on their lives, helping people to manage their own fatigue to live as well as possible.
