GENERATIONS TO OFFER ONLINE CHRONIC DISEASE SELF-MANAGEMENT PROGRAM: According to the National Council on Aging, about 80% of older adults have at least one chronic disease, and 68% have at least two. Many adults with conditions such as arthritis, asthma, diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and others struggle to find ways to manage their condition. Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions will address issues faced by individuals dealing with chronic disease. Some of the topics discussed during the course of this program are: techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation and poor sleep; decision-making skills to better deal with medication use and treatment options; exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance; pacing activity and rest; nutrition gaps; and action planning. Generations would like to schedule a workshop in the near future for interested individuals. If you are interested in learning more about this excellent program and possibly participating in this workshop, please contact Cathy Jones at 812-888-5159.
