Self care

Self-care and management of long term conditions is a key element of all our services, supporting the care people take towards their own health and wellbeing.

Self-care is applicable to us all; it describes all the things we do to maintain our physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing. It can include:

  • taking appropriate medication
  • attending appointments
  • making informed choices about care
  • relaxing, eating healthily and taking exercise
  • being socially active
  • getting involved in your community

There are many services and organisations that can help you to self-care in and around Nottinghamshire. You can find them on the Nottinghamshire Help Yourself Self website.
