Your Way to Wellness is a free chronic disease self management program that helps people with chronic conditions (and their caregivers) overcome daily challenges, take action and live a healthy life.
Groups meet weekly for two and half hours for six weeks and are led by trained volunteers, most of whom have chronic conditions themselves. Family and friends are welcome to attend as well.
Participants learn how to:
- Set goals and problem solve
- Improve communication with health care providers, family and friends
- Eat healthier and become more active
- Manage symptoms
- Make daily tasks easier
- Improve self-confidence
- Manage fear, anger and frustration
We are starting to offer online Your Way to Wellness sessions. Please call 1888-672-3444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
