The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering a chronic pain self-management program starting Sept. 3.
These free workshops will be held virtually from 9:30 a.m. to noon every Friday, Sept. 3 – Oct. 8. You must have internet access and a computer to participate.
Adults age 60 and older who are living with chronic pain, and 60-plus caregivers caring for someone living with chronic pain, are invited to participate in the interactive program, which spans six workshops, once a week.
Taught by certified instructors through the agency, this health-promotion program provides tools for managing your health, dealing with difficult emotions, and living a better life with chronic pain.
The program introduces participants to self-management tools like healthy eating, exercise, action planning, and dealing with difficult emotions, among others.
A companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain, and an exercise CD will be provided for all participants.
There is no charge for the workshops. Preregistration is required by calling Megan Craley at (717) 771-9610.
