Living Well with Chronic Conditions

May 31 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Living Well with Chronic Conditions is a wellness class for everyone, designed to empower participants to be managers of their own health. This six-week class meets once a week from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Each class includes a new topic, such as eating to feel good, getting the sleep you need, and knowing how to communicate with your doctor. The class is a combination of presentations, discussion, and activities with others who have similar experiences. Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their plan. You will learn about:

  • Dealing with frustration, fatigue, pain, and isolation
  • Exercises for improving strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Use of medications
  • Communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals
  • Nutrition
  • How to evaluate new treatments

A telephone version of the class is also offered.
