The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering free self-management workshops called Looking Beyond My Condition: Empowerment Tools to Manage Your Health, Your Way, a chronic disease self-management program.
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 the workshops. This interactive program spans six workshops, once a week for 1 hour. The workshops will be taught by certified instructors through the agency.
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.
These free virtual workshops will be held from 9 to 10 am every Thursday, beginning January 7 through February 11. A computer and internet access is required as the workshops will be done via Zoom.
There is no charge for any of the workshops. Pre-registration is required by calling Megan Craley at 717-771-9610, ext. 1017.
