Event description

Description

This FREE 6-week Healthy Living Workshop for Chronic Conditions Program is designed to help adults who are either living with (or trying to prevent) a chronic condition, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, chronic pain, arthritis, lung disease, multiple sclerosis -- or any chronic health concerns -- take charge of their health and their life! Adults caring for someone living with a chronic condition are welcome to register as well.

Classes are open to adults of all ages and abilities. All self-management programs are evidence-based and were originally developed at Stanford University. This program is offered locally by Beebe Healthcare in partnership with the Delaware Division of Public Health

People with different chronic health conditions attend together to:

  • Develop weekly action plans based on their needs
  • Share experiences
  • Help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program

Topics participants will learn about include:

  • Techniques to deal with emotions or challenges such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
  • Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Appropriate use of medications
  • Communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals
  • Nutrition
  • Decision making and problem solving
  • How to evaluate new treatments
