Self Care is about keeping yourself and your loved ones as fit and healthy as possible.
It's about knowing how to take medicines properly, treating minor ailments yourself and seeking the expert advice of your local pharmacist in the first instance.
If you have a long-term condition, self care is about understanding that condition and learning how to manage it well.
