DISEASE SELF-MANAGEMENT: Direction Home of Eastern Ohio is offering the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program workshop through Healthy U in a call format, to assist in efforts to provide social engagement and education in the times of social distancing. Direction Home will offer the alternative format until it can safely resume in-person workshops, and as long as funding through the Older Americans Act is available.

This course will help participants find ways to deal with everyday problems related to chronic conditions. Some topics discussed include, but are not limited to, techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation. Participants will learn appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance, as well as the appropriate use of medication. Participants will be coached on how to effectively communicate with family, friends and health professionals regarding their chronic condition.

Those interested in participating in this workshop must be 60 years or older and live in Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning or Columbiana county and have the ability to participate in group sessions via telephone for 30 minutes once a week for six weeks. Call or email Mallory Wiand at 330-505-2340 or mwiand@dheo.org to sign up for this course.

A free tool kit will be mailed to participants prior to the course and will introduce information and skills that have been proven to help many people with different physical and mental health conditions lead a healthy life.

Healthy U is the name used in Ohio for evidence-based chronic disease self-management workshops developed at Stanford University. The workshops provide people living with chronic health conditions with the tools to help improve overall health and quality of life.
