Welcome to Brent Self Care
This site has been put together by Brent CCG to provide you with advice and information related to maintaining your health and well being.
It also provides advice on various health conditions, ie, dementia, diabetes, as well as provides guidance on exercise, diet and nutrition.
- Self care means looking after yourself in a healthy way, whether it’s brushing your teeth, taking medicine when you have a cold, or
doing some exercise.
- If you have a long-term condition, there are extra things you may need to consider, such as making changes to your diet, different types
of exercise or different types of medication you may need to take.
- Self care also means staying active by doing things that are important to you, such as gardening, seeing friends and family, going on
holiday, or continuing to work, if possible. It involves looking at what you can do and want to do, rather than what you can’t do.
