Let early spring be the time you do something wonderful for yourself: improving your life even while dealing with a chronic health condition! While there are a very wide variety of chronic health conditions, many of the symptoms and emotions experienced by the sufferers are the same- fatigue, pain, depression, frustration, etc. Living Well with Chronic Conditions is an evidence-based program developed by Stanford University. It is a workshop that consists of 6 sessions taught by trained lay-leaders and is designed to teach sufferers skills that can be used to better manage symptoms and improve one’s outlook. St. Mary’s County Department of Aging & Human Services, in conjunction with Health Connections has been offering this periodically over the last seven years with updates to the program that make this workshop even more effective. New sessions will begin at Loffler Senior Activity Center on March 2 and will continue through April 6. If you are serious about learning new ways to manage your symptoms, make daily tasks easier, communicate effectively with your doctors, lessen frustration, fight fatigue and get more out of life, then this is for you! If you have any questions, or wish to sign up call 301-475-4200, ext. *1658, or stop by the reception desk.
