Fatigue Management

Fatigue is the feeling of extreme tiredness or exhaustion all or most of the time. It can feel overwhelming and unrelenting and it is often not improved by rest. For some people, the symptoms are very mild and do not interfere much with daily life. For others it can be very disruptive.

If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, you will benefit from attending this course.

  • General tiredness and a feeling of having no energy
  • Even the smallest chore feels like an enormous challenge
  • Difficulty remembering or making decisions
  • Irritability with family and friends
  • Problems with sleep

About the programme

This programme explores ways you can conserve energy as this is known to be a major concern for patients with life limiting illnesses, regardless of diagnosis. We will help you identify realistic, meaningful goals and find ways to achieve them.

We will be offering support on fatigue management through one to one telephone appointments and information packs that can be sent to individual patients. In time we are planning to create online groups to share hints and tips on fatigue management, similar to the group setting we would normally have in the wellbeing lounge.
