The Living Well with Chronic Conditions (LWCC) program will be conducted once a week for six weeks beginning February 7 at 12 noon at the Cannon County Senior Center in Woodbury. This program is intended for anyone living with a chronic condition, family members, friends and caregivers of an individual with a chronic condition.
Each session is two hours in length. Space is limited to twenty participants. Call the Senior Center at 563-5304 to register today. There is NO registration fee as it is funded through UT Extension, Family and Consumer Sciences and Department of Human Service secured grants.
This includes the cost of the program, materials and the book Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, a $15.00 value.
Developed by Stanford University, this evidence-based program teaches practical skills on managing chronic diseases. Participants learn about self-management of their health condition and ways to work effectively with their health care professionals.
This program was offered last spring in Woodbury and was very beneficial to those who participated with one participant commenting that the LWCC program “made me look at changes that I could do to make handling my life better. The weekly action plan made me accountable for the changes I put in place and having to report my progress really motivated me to get it done.”
Through this interactive program, participants gain confidence in their ability to cope with their health condition and become motivated to make lifestyle changes, adhere to prescribed medical treatments and become informed patients.
