LiveWell With Chronic Conditions

 

 

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

LiveWell with Chronic Conditions 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, March 6 in Kipling and Monday, April 9 in Weyburn.  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
