Nobody wants to have a chronic long-term illness. Unfortunately, most of us will experience two or more of these conditions during our lives. The Living Well with Chronic Conditions Self-Management Program is provided to help people with chronic illness explore healthy ways to live with a physical or mental condition. The 6-week workshop addresses what happens with most chronic health problems. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, depression, liver disease, bipolar disorder, emphysema, or any one of a host of others, cause most people to experience fatigue as well as to lose physical strength and endurance. In addition, they may cause emotional distress, such as frustration, anger, anxiety, or a sense of helplessness.
Program participants will learn how to function at their best regardless of the difficulties life presents. The program goal is to aid participants in achieving the things they want to do and to get pleasure from life. That is what the Living Well programs are about.
Each participant will get help in finding the sills needed in order to follow their individual path to improving their quality of life. There are no miracles or cures provided in the program, however, participants will find hundreds of tips and ideas to make their life easier. The advice presented comes from physicians and other health professionals,
What To Expect in Living Well Workshops
Each Living Well workshop is 6-weeks in duration. Participants meet once a week for a 2.5 hour session.
