Living with a Chronic Health Issue? Learn to manage it with Better Choices, Better Health

1/5/2012

Good News! The Better Choices, Better Health program presented by LRGHealthcare will be offered in TWO locations this winter. This workshop is for people with chronic conditions or any long-term health issue, and is also open to caregivers who want to feel better by living healthier lives.

Workshop leaders will guide participants through a proven program developed by the Stanford University School of Medicine. These sessions are ideal for anyone living with a chronic health condition which may include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, COPD, anxiety, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, back problems, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia or any other life-changing chronic health condition.

Sessions are available in the Three Rivers region at Franklin Regional Hospital each Tuesday, beginning January 17 through February 21 from 11:00 am-1:30 pm, and in the Lakes Region at the Taylor Community (Co-sponsor), in the Woodside Building each Thursday, beginning January 26 through March 1 from 9:00-11:30 am. A $25 donation is appreciated, but not required.

Those attending the workshops will: apply skills for living a full, healthy life with a chronic condition; learn to set individual, weekly goals; make a step-by-step plan for improving health and quality of life; find practical ways to deal with pain and fatigue; discover better nutrition and exercise choices; learn to manage medications; discover better ways to talk with health care providers and family members about chronic conditions and learn how to relax and handle difficult emotions.
