Harlequin Care is a small Dorset charity which offers Complementary Therapy treatments to Dorset's unpaid Carers.
Our vision: to preserve and protect the health of Dorset's forgotten unpaid Carers.
Caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness can sometimes be difficult, both physically and emotionally. Harlequin Care provides support for Carers, free of charge, through the provision of Complementary Therapy treatments and befriending.
Harlequin Care runs Carers' days throughout Dorset. These days are an opportunity to meet with Harlequin Care volunteers and other Carers, have a relaxed chat over refreshments and then have a pre-booked appointment with a qualified holistic practitioner from a range of Complementary Therapies, including various Massage treatments, Reflexology, Reiki, Beauty facials and Manicures. There is also a Counsellor available to help Carers who are struggling with various issues.
Each of our day clinics costs £1200 as we need to hire a venue and pay our therapists, so we are in constant need of financial help.
Any resident of Dorset who is caring for a relative, friend or neighbour is eligible to benefit from the services of Harlequin Care. We have in the region of 70 Carers on our books - a small number of Dorset's 42,000 unpaid Carers!
