For many people, coping with a chronic health condition can be extremely trying. Fatigue, pain, breathing difficulties, sleeping problems, loss of energy, depression and anxiety about the future are common.
Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions is a fun and practical course, which can help people with chronic conditions overcome these daily challenges and maintain an active, fulfilling life. Participants learn about healthier ways to live, gain confidence and motivation to manage their health, and feel more positive about their lives. They are provided with information, strategies, and techniques, so they will have the tools they need to help themselves.
Adults of all ages who are experiencing chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, fibromyalgia, hypertension, depression or other long-term health conditions may attend. This Stanford University, evidence-based course is conducted in workshops for six weeks and is highly interactive for participants. The course will be led by two trained facilitators including LuAnn Mason, community and wellness education coordinator at Shelby Senior Services, Inc. They will guide course participants to learn how to manage symptoms, get started with healthy eating and exercise, communicate effectively with their doctor and health care team, manage their fear, anger, and frustration, make daily tasks easier and get more out of life.
Classes begin April 16 and will run for six consecutive Tuesdays from 1-3:30 p.m. (April 23, 30, May 7, 14, 21) Registration is required and will be accepted through
