Several times each year the Health Centre offers two six week programs to help individuals learn tools and skills to living well with a chronic condition.
This program is for individuals who are living with the challenges of a chronic (ongoing) health concern. These chronic conditions include: pain, diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) or asthma – to name a few.
The purpose of these groups is to support people to “live well” with a chronic condition. Support is given in the areas of:
- Coping with pain and fatigue
- Managing difficult emotions
- Exercise and nutrition
- Communication, goal setting & problem solving
- Use of medication
- Making informed treatment decisions
- Developing positive partnerships with health care professionals
The group is open to people with chronic conditions as well as those who care for them. Free child-minding is available if required. To find out when the next group is scheduled, please contact Clara, Seniors’ WrapAround Facilitator (519) 660-0875 ext 316.
