Description

Six-week class designed to improve self-management of chronic health issues

“Living Well with Chronic Conditions” is a six-week series of 2 ½-hour sessions designed to empower adults of all ages living with ongoing health challenges to better manage and improve their health. Taught weekly by trained volunteer leaders, most of whom have health conditions themselves, the low- or no-cost series is evidence-based and was created at Stanford University. 

Participants learn to manage their symptoms, stress, and medications, deal with depression and other emotions, set personal goals and problem solve, improve lifestyle choices and feel better about life. “The workshops put me back in charge of my life, and I feel great,” writes one participant. “Now I have more energy than I’ve had in years. I’m calmer and more confident about my health,” adds another. Members of the small-group sessions become very supportive of each other and sometimes continue to meet independently after the series has ended.

Upcoming Living Well workshops are held at and sponsored by Dean Clinic - East on Fridays April 4 – May 16 (no class 4/18), from 10:00am – 12:30pm.  The refundable  textbook deposit  is $20.00; scholarships available. For more information on this program which benefits those with MS, diabetes, heart disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and many other conditions or to register, visit www.wihealthyaging.org and www.safercommunity.net. To register, call Lynne at 836-9810 now.
