Southwestern CT Agency on Aging
Southwestern CT Agency on Aging is pleased to present Live Well and Live Well Diabetes programs to our communities. Live Well, a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, is a national evidence based health promotion program developed by Stanford University. Live Well is for older adults who want to learn how to manage their on-going health issues such as diabetes, arthritis, lung and heart disease, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. Live Well is a workshop series meeting weekly for six weeks and cover topics such as healthy eating, exercise, better balance, decision making, goal setting, effective communication, and much more. Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program. Workshops are held in community settings such as senior centers, churches, senior housing, libraries, clinics, and hospitals. The highly interactive workshop is co-facilitated by two trained workshop leaders. Each workshop participant is lent a copy of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and a relaxation CD. We are looking for participants, leaders and host sites. If you are interested in learning more please contact Cathy Grosshart at 203-814-3693 or email@example.com.
