The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering free self-management workshops in January and February.
A chronic disease self-management program called “Looking beyond My Condition: Empowerment Tools to Manage Your Health, Your Way” will be held 9-10 a.m. Thursdays, Jan. 7 through Feb. 11.
Adults age 60 and older who are living with ongoing medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, COPD, stroke, cancer, or others are invited to participate in this interactive program, which spans six workshops, once a week, for one hour.
The workshops will be taught by certified instructors through the agency.
This health-promotion program provides tools for managing your health, dealing with difficult emotions, and breaking the symptom cycle that comes with chronic conditions.
The York County Area Agency on Aging is also offering a self-management program called “Living Well with Diabetes,” to be held 1:30-2:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 13 through Feb. 17.
Adults 60 and older living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and caregivers age 60 and older caring for someone with diabetes, can participate in the interactive program, which spans six workshops, once a week, for one hour.
This health-promotion program introduces participants to self-management tools like healthy eating, monitoring blood sugar, action planning, and dealing with difficult emotions, among others.
A companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition, and an audio relaxation CD will be provided for all participants of both programs.
Both workshops will be taught by certified instructors through the agency. A computer and internet access are required as the workshops will be held via Zoom.
There is no charge for any of the workshops. Preregistration is required by calling Megan Craley at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1017.
