“TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH” IN FRANKLIN AND VERNON
Do you suffer from a chronic condition? Are you the caregiver of a loved one who is dealing with a chronic disease or disability? The Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Senior Services offers you the opportunity to “Take Control of Your Health” by taking part in a 6 week program (2 ½ hours per week) that enables 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. The interactive, goal-oriented workshops are led by trained, volunteer peer leaders, who are also dealing with chronic conditions. The workshops are complemented by a FREE manual, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.” This evidence-based program is funded under Title III D of the Older Americans Act, as amended, and is offered at NO COST.
