Healthier Living: A self-management class for older adults

Classes held Oct. 13 – Nov. 17 in Boulder

Boulder County, Colo.  –  Are you living with an on-going health problem? Diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and diabetes can cause daily challenges. You can begin to feel like the disease is affecting every aspect of your life. Healthier Living is a six week program developed by Stanford University designed to give you the skills you need to become a self-manager and get back to living your life.

      What: Healthier Living Class/Stanford’s Chronic Disease Self-Management Program
      When: Tuesdays, Oct. 13 – Nov. 17, 1:30 – 4 p.m.
      Where: Frasier Meadows Retirement Community, 350 Ponca Place, Boulder

Topics include how to set and accomplish your goals; how to deal with pain and fatigue; the important role of nutrition and exercise; and how to improve communication skills. Healthier Living participants often say this class helped them learn how to set reasonable goals. The workshop gave me the “motivation to take charge and make changes.”

Healthier Living is offered without charge through a partnership with Boulder County Area Agency on Aging, Boulder Community Health, and the Consortium for Older Adult Wellness.
