Living Well workshop series to be held in Princeton

August 30, 2017 by  

Coping with a chronic illness on a daily basis can sometimes be difficult, and a program is being offered in the community of Princeton that will help those living with such a condition to meet the challenges they face head on.

The Living Well workshop may be of interest to people living with conditions like arthritis, diabetes, depression, heart disease, or weight concerns, and their partner or other support person is welcome as well. The six classes, which will be held once a week, will be facilitated by trained peer leaders from Fairview Health Services.

The participants in the sessions will learn a variety of techniques to help them live the best life they can. They will be taught how to set goals and manage their daily tasks so they become easier, ways of finding support, methods working with others, and how to include time to unwind and relax each day. In addition to all of this, they will learn how to navigate through the healthcare system. A stationery printing company can supply workbooks and other customized printed materials for use during events like these.

The series of sessions has been planned to begin this fall, and is scheduled to begin on October 11 in Princeton Middle School. Everyone living with a chronic condition, as well as their support person, family member or friend, is strongly encouraged to attend.
