The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering free diabetes self-management workshops called “Living Well with Diabetes” from 9–11:30 a.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 10–Oct. 15, at South Central Senior Center, 150 E. Main St., New Freedom.

York County residents 60 and older living with diabetes or prediabetes, and caregivers age 60 and older caring for someone with diabetes, can participate.

The interactive program spans six workshops, once a week for 2.5 hours, and will be taught by certified instructors through the agency.

Developed by the Self-Management Resource Center, this health-promotion program provides tools for managing diabetes, dealing with difficult emotions, and breaking the symptom cycle that comes with the disease.

The program introduces participants to self-management tools like healthy eating, monitoring blood sugar, and action planning, 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.

There is no charge for the workshops. Preregistration is required by calling the senior center at (717) 235-6060.
