The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering a free chronic-disease self-management program Mondays, April 1 through May 6, from 12:30-3 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center, 2000 Hollywood Drive, York Township.
“Looking Beyond My Condition: Empowerment Tools to Manage Your Health, Your Way” is for York County residents 60 and older who are living with ongoing medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, COPD, stroke, cancer, or others.
This interactive program spans six weekly workshops taught by certified instructors.
Developed by the Self-Management Resource Center, formerly Stanford University Patient Education Program, this health-promotion program provides tools for managing your health, dealing with difficult emotions, and breaking the symptom cycle that comes with chronic conditions.
A companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition, and an audio relaxation tape will be provided for all participants.
There is no charge for the workshops. Preregistration is required by calling Megan Craley at (717) 771-9610.
