Chronic Conditions Program Scheduled | Health & Fitness

WATERBURY — Adults with ongoing health conditions such as arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease or any other chronic issues can learn better ways to manage recurring challenges such as pain, fatigue, difficult emotions, anxiety and stress during a free, six-week, in-home version of the popular Live Well With Chronic Conditions workshop. 

The Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging is offering a telephone group that will meet from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays, July 19 through August 23. A trained Live Well leader will facilitate the free one-hour group phone call. 

WCAAA’s toll free conference call line is used to connect everyone and participants call from the comfort of their own homes. They will learn about healthy eating, physical activity and exercise, dealing with difficult emotions, decision-making and communication skills, working with healthcare providers and action planning.

Each participant will be mailed a tool kit at no cost consisting of the book, “Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Conditions,” an instruction booklet and a relaxation CD.

Class size is limited to six participants and preregistration is required. Participants must be willing to share their name, address and phone number so the tool kit can be mailed directly to them.

Registration may be had by calling Debby at 203-757-5449, ext. 125, or emailing [email protected].
