The York County Area Agency on Aging is also offering a self-management program called “Living Well With Diabetes”.
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 workshops. The 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 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.
These free virtual workshops will be held from 1:30 to 2:30 pm every Wednesday, beginning January 13 through February 17. 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.
