Evening aims to help arthritis sufferers

THE ANGUS Arthritis Forum are holding a free information evening for people suffering from the condition.

The event will take place in the health education room in Springfield Medical Centre in Arbroath on Wednesday, September 26  from 6.30 p.m. until 8.30 p.m.

The theme of the evening is energy conservation and Diane Bannerman from Energy Saving Scotland will be offering advice and practical tips on energy saving measures for the home.

NHS Tayside occupational therapist Elise Tainsh will also be giving a short introductory session on the fatigue management programme which aims to help people who experience excessive tiredness or exhaustion, all or most of the time.

The session will provide practical ideas and suggestions to help people understand more about fatigue and its effect on their lives.

Angus Community Health Partnership (CHP), in conjunction with the Arthritis Forum, has organised this informal evening and would encourage anyone living with arthritis, their families and friends to come along for the two-hour session.
