Healthier Living Workshop

Living Better with Long-Term Health Challenges

The Healthier Living Workshop is a free, six-week series to help adults of all ages learn to feel better with long-term health conditions like asthma, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and diabetes. This is not an exercise class. This interactive workshop in a supportive small-group setting will help you practice better management of your condition. Caregivers are also welcome.

Senior man and womanSome of the topics covered are:

  • Techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
  • Appropriate use of medications
  • How to talk with family, friends and health professionals so they understand your needs
  • Setting realistic goals for nutrition and exercise
