Senior Services of Snohomish County, in partnership with Edmonds Senior Center is offering a free 6-week workshop called Living Well with Chronic Conditions.

The workshop starts on Friday May 10 and meets for six Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to noon. All participants will also receive a free book titled Living a healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.

This 6-week workshop, developed by Stanford University’s  Patient Education Department, is designed to help individuals who have an ongoing condition (such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis, and hypertension) improve the quality of their lives.

Learn to reduce stress and frustration, manage symptoms, set weekly goals, problem-solve effectively, improve communication, relax, handle difficult emotions, eat well, and exercise safely.

Past participants report feeling an increase in their confidence and motivation needed to manage the challenges of living with a chronic health condition.

Family members, friends and caregivers can also participate.

Space is limited, registration required  contact Barb Thomas at 425-265-2283 or bthomas@sssc.org.
