King's runs a cafe for carers every 4th Friday of the Month

If you are a carer for your relative who has been treated in critical care (either at King's or another hospital), go along to the Critical Care team's Carers' Cafe.
A list of dates fro the upcoming carers cafe

Critical Care is often known as Intensive Care;  treating people who have serious and life-threatening conditions.

Often, relatives of patients become their carer. They take on this role either temporarily, while the patient recovers, or they provide ongoing care if the patient needs long-term support.

Carers of critical care patients can sometimes feel abandoned and unprepared for the role. King's would like to change this.

When

Every 4th Friday of the Month at 3pm, in Cecily Saunders Centre at King's College Hospital

The aim of the cafe is for staff at King's to:

  • discover what you need now as a carer
  • teach you skills to help you in your caring role
  • share what is known about the effects of a stay in critical care on patients and their families
  • answer your questions about critical care
  • improve your experience of critical care
