Chronic Disease Self-Management
The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is a workshop that runs between 1 and 2 hours once a week for six weeks. People with different ongoing health problems attend together. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.
Subjects covered include:
Techniques to handle problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
Appropriate exercises for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance
Appropriate use of medication
Communicating effectively with family, friends and health professionals
Aspects of nutrition
How to evaluate new treatments
Besides our public workshops, we can offer workshops to private groups.

We've just finished our second Chronic Disease Self-Management thi year, the first in Aurora and the second in Weedsport. We plan to offer the next on in late summer or early autumn.
We are always looking for hosts or groups who are willing to work with us.
