COSHOCTON – Do you live with a long-term health condition such as arthritis, diabetes, lung disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, chronic pain, anxiety or depression? Are you tired, alone or stressed by your health problems and need a better way to manage your symptoms?

The Coshocton Senior Center will be hosting a chronic disease self-management program. This free workshop helps participants learn proven strategies to manage chronic health conditions and live healthier, happier lives.

The program is conducted in six weekly, interactive, small group sessions and will meet from 1 to 3:30 p.m. every Tuesday Nov. 3 through Dec. 8. The classes will be led by Jeff Arnold, RN, Long Term Care Specialist with Area Agency on Aging, Region 9. Topics to be covered include strategies to deal with stress, frustration, fatigue, pain and depression; using physical activity to maintain and improve strength, flexibility and endurance; how to use medications safely and appropriately; better ways to talk to your doctor and family about your health; how to evaluate new treatments; and setting and achieving personal health goals.
