Some activities we offer in conjunction with our Community Partners are:
• Health Screenings
• Physical Fitness Programs
• Nutrition Education
• Information on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of age-related diseases
• Chronic Disease and Medication Management
• Fall prevention and evidence-based programming
Chronic Disease Self Management Program
Better Choices. Better Health.
Consider attending a Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions Workshop.
Are you an adult age 55 or older with an ongoing health condition? Are you a caregiver of someone living with an ongoing health condition?
You'll get the support you need, find practical ways to deal with pain and fatigue, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand new treatment choices, and learn better ways to talk with your doctor and family about your health.
If you have conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain, anxiety, or others, the Living a Healthy Life Workshop can help you take charge of your life.
