Live Well with Chronic Conditions

Sun Country Health Region is offering a six week program for community residents of Weyburn and Carlyle this spring. The program, “LiveWell with Chronic Conditions” is a world renowned program developed by Stanford University.

LiveWell is a self-management program for those people who are living with or caring for someone with a chronic condition. Chronic conditions are long lasting in duration and include conditions like arthritis, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, depression, COPD or lung related illnesses.

This community based program covers topics such as effective communication strategies for loved ones and health professionals, dealing with difficult emotions, goal setting and action plans, medications, nutrition, and physical activity.

The workshops are free of charge and run once a week for 6 weeks, starting on Tuesday, May 23 in Weyburn and Thursday, May 25 in Carlyle.  Participants each take home a FREE textbook with information relating to the sessions as well as other helpful information for dealing with chronic conditions.  

The public can be registered by calling (306) 842-8711 or emailing livewell@schr.sk.ca.
