Senior Services and SCCC: A Health Promotion Partnership
(Newton, NJ) The Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Senior Services has partnered with Sussex County Community College (SCCC) to offer a nationally recognized program that has been proven to improve the lives of participants. "Take Control of Your Health" is a workshop series designed to enhance the wellness of those dealing with chronic conditions either personally or as caregivers. The workshops will take place at SCCC once a week for six weeks. Sessions are 2 ½ hours each and facilitated by Senior Services staff and/or trained volunteer peer leaders who are also dealing with chronic conditions. Participants will learn practical strategies and techniques for dealing with the pain, fatigue, frustration, and other symptoms shared by those experiencing chronic conditions regardless of their particular disease/disorder. They will be empowered to communicate effectively with healthcare providers and create action plans that will further enable them to take charge of their situations. "Take Control of Your Health" is offered at NO COST and available to adults of any age.
