The Grays Harbor County Health Department, in collaboration with The Olympic Area Agency on Aging, has scheduled a free workshop open to the public, Living Well With Chronic Conditions, to be held one day a week, for six consecutive weeks beginning Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the Grays Harbor County Health Department first floor conference room, 2109 Sumner, Aberdeen.
Two specifically trained leaders will facilitate the workshop. All of the materials individuals will be using were developed by Stanford University’s Chronic Disease-Self Management Program. This program is designed to help anyone who suffers from a chronic condition, including diabetes, asthma, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis and hypertension just to name a few; to lessen their stress and frustration, manage symptoms, and deal with fatigue.
Those caring for a loved one with a chronic condition may benefit from this workshop also.
Each participant will have access to a “Living Well With Chronic Conditions” book. The goal of the program is to help you live a healthy life with your chronic conditions by managing your symptoms.
Space for the workshop is limited so please register early.
