Living Well Chronic Disease Self-Management Program

Group of Healthy People

COVID-19 UPDATE:

The health and safety of our residents are our highest priorities. With ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations from state health authorities to limit gatherings of people, we have made the decision to postpone our upcoming in-person classes. As soon as we are able to reschedule our educational programming, we will be in contact with updated information.

The Living Well Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is a self-management class for anyone with a chronic condition (arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension), or any other chronic condition that requires ongoing medication.  Classes meet once a week for 2.5 hours and cover a variety of topics that support developing a healthier lifestyle and how to be a partner with your health care team.  Registration is required.

Who Should Register? 

If you have a chronic condition like arthritis, diabetes, heart disease or any other chronic conditions that require ongoing medication, you can take charge of your health and live well! If you wish to register for the Living Well class, please complete the online registration form. Seating is limited, and registration is required.  Registrants should be 18 years and over and diagnosed with a chronic condition.  Caregivers and/or relatives are welcomed to attend.  Once you complete the registration form, you will receive a follow-up call or email to confirm your registration.
