DAYTON — Two free six-week Healthy Living phone discussion workshops will be offered in July.
Healthy Living with Chronic Pain – Phone discussion group begins on July 11, taking place Mondays from 2 to 3 p.m.
Healthy Living with Chronic Conditions – Phone discussion group begins July 13, taking place Wednesdays from 10 to 11 a.m.
Registration for all workshops is required by June 28.
These workshops are open to adults of any age living with a chronic health condition and/or their caregivers. Healthy Living workshops focus on common problems like chronic pain, nutrition, exercise, medication use, emotions, and communicating with doctors and family. Participants develop skills and coping strategies to manage symptoms through setting achievable goals, problem-solving, decision-making, social support, and more.
Healthy Living workshops are an opportunity to put personal health first and take the time needed to form new, healthy habits in an encouraging environment. Only 20% of personal health is determined by what happens in the doctor’s office. Healthy Living gives participants the opportunity to put their health in their own hands and improve their quality of life.
Workshops are supported by the Area Agency on Aging, PSA 2. The Agency on Aging helps older adults of west central Ohio remain in their homes with independence and dignity. The Area Agency on Aging is an independent, private, nonprofit corporation that plans and funds services for older persons in Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby Counties.
