"Take Control of Your Health" Class Announced
(Newton, NJ) Seniors or disabled individuals and/or their caregivers, who are living with chronic conditions or a disability, are invited to participate in "Take Control of Your Health" classes, sponsored by the Sussex County Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Senior Services. The "Take Control of Your Health" class is a FREE six-week, 2 ½ hour per week course, based on a chronic disease self-management model developed by the Self-Management Resource Center. Each week the interactive class, led by a team of Peer Leaders, will assist participants in building the skills necessary to manage symptoms; communicate effectively with healthcare professionals; develop healthy lifestyles including good nutrition and exercise; alleviate fear, anger and frustration; make daily tasks easier; and get more out of life. The course is supplemented with a manual "Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions" that will be provided to each participant.
A new course is currently scheduled to take place on Thursdays from September 26th through November 7, 2019 (no class on October 17, 2019), from 1:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., at the Sussex Wantage Library which is located at 69 County Route 639, Wantage, NJ. Light snacks will be provided at each session.
