Senior Events 8/23

LIVING WELL WITH CHRONIC CONDITIONS: Sea Mar Community Health Center, in collaboration with Olympic Area Agency on Aging, has scheduled three FREE workshops open to the public: “Chronic Pain Self-Management,” “Living Well with Chronic Conditions” and “Diabetes Self-Management.” All of the workshops will be held in the Sea Mar first floor conference room, 1813 Sumner Avenue in Aberdeen. The Chronic Pain Self-Management Workshop will begin Tuesday, Sept. 2 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The workshop will continue each Tuesday for six weeks ending on Oct. 7. This program was developed for people who have primary or secondary diagnoses of chronic pain and is designed to give participants the skills and confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active, fulfilling lives. The Living Well with Chronic Conditions workshop will begin Monday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This workshop will continue each Monday for six weeks ending on Oct. 13. Any individual suffering from a chronic condition such as asthma, heart disease, chronic pain, and arthritis just to name a few, will benefit from attending the classes. The Diabetes Self-Management workshop begins Thursday, Sept. 11, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. It will continue each Thursday for six weeks ending on Oct.16. This workshop will focus on individuals who suffer from a chronic condition related to diabetes. These workshops are designed to help lessen stress and frustration and help manage symptoms. The workshops will be taught by two trained leaders. All of the materials individuals will be using were developed by Stanford University’s Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. Those caring for a loved one with a Chronic Condition may benefit from the workshops also. For more information and to register for either workshop, call 538-2457 or toll free at 1-866-582-1487.

Looking Back — Downtown Hoquiam

This aerial view of Hoquiam in the 1920s shows the old 8th Street Bridge over the Hoquiam River and the main business section of downtown. With the exception of the old bank building (and its next door neighbor) at the foot of the bridge, this whole area is completely different today. Most of the buildings are gone or replaced, many as a result of the urban renewal that took place in the late 1960s.
