Free Living Well Workshops
We are offering two free Living Well workshops. Please review the following details including registration information.
- The Living Well with Chronic Conditions workshop is designed to help individuals who have an ongoing condition (such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis, and hypertension) improve the quality of their lives.
- The Living Well with Pain workshop is designed for people who experience chronic or on-going pain, are often exhausted from the pain, lack energy, and feel isolated with a lack of control.
Both classes provide tools, information, and strategies to help those with pain or a chronic condition cope with daily struggles. Mutual support in a caring and trusting environment and success build the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active, fulfilling lives. Participants learn to reduce stress and frustration, manage symptoms, set weekly goals, problem-solve effectively, improve communication, relax, handle difficult emotions, eat well, and exercise safely. Past participants report feeling an increase in their confidence and motivation to manage the challenges of living with a chronic health condition. Family members, friends and caregivers can also participate.
- These 6-week workshops offered by Island Senior Resources are FREE!!
- You will also receive the book “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” or “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain” to use during both workshops. At the end of the workshop you will have the opportunity to purchase the books, if you choose.
