- Are you struggling with symptoms of the menopause?
- Are you finding that your symptoms are having an impact on your quality of life?
If the answer is yes, we are here to support you with residential weeks at our centres in October 2022, as part of our Women’s Health programme. And there are spaces still available at Marine Court and Jubilee House.
The menopause is a natural and normal part of ageing and occurs when women stop having periods and are no longer able to have children. It’s a gradual process which happens over months or years, but one in four people with menopause symptoms are concerned about their ability to cope.
Approximately 13 million women in the UK are either peri or post-menopausal, with symptoms lasting up to 15 years. Over 60% of women experience symptoms resulting in behaviour changes, almost half say they feel depressed and a third say they suffer with anxiety. Meanwhile, 1 in 5 take time off to deal with menopausal symptoms, with 1 in 50 on long-term sick.
With that in mind, we are introducing a women’s health programme at Jubilee House and Marine Court from 9-14 October, which is designed to offer support to those struggling to manage their physical and mental wellbeing.
We can offer a structured physical and psychological programme which will help to build resilience, whilst also offering the opportunity for you to meet others to seek peer support.
If you feel that we can help you on one of these programmes, give us call to discuss your needs on 0800 389 8820 or register for MyFFC and visit the ‘Access Support’ tab at the top of the MyFFC homepage.
Not sure which programme may be suitable for you? No problem, our practitioners will work with you to explore how we may be able to help you.
