“TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH” WITH PROJECT HEALTHY LIVING
Do you suffer from a chronic condition? Are you the caregiver of a loved one who is dealing with a chronic disease or disability? Sussex County Division of Senior Services offers you the opportunity to “Take Control of Your Health” by joining our FREE Project Healthy Living initiative. Project Healthy Living workshops enable participants to develop the skills to manage symptoms; communicate effectively with health care professionals; deal with fear, anger and frustration; develop healthy lifestyles; and get more out of life.
“Take Control of Your Health” by registering for an upcoming series of six workshops that take place for 2 ½ hours each week. Workshops are led by trained, volunteer Peer Leaders who are also dealing with chronic conditions. Sessions are interactive, goal-oriented and fun. The workshops are complemented by a manual, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions,” that is provided to participants at NO COST. The next workshops will take place at the Sussex County Main Library on Mondays: March 9, 16, 23, 30, and April 6, 13, 2009 from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Call the Sussex County Division of Senior Services, at 973-579-0555, for additional information about the workshops, Peer Leadership opportunities, or to register for Project Healthy Living.
