Area Agency on Aging Coordinates Healthy U Workshops

For Immediate Release: Area Agency on Aging Coordinates Healthy U Workshops

For many older adults, good health ensures independence and productivity as they age and often are struggling with health challenges. Approximately 80% of older adults have at least one chronic disease, and 50% have at least two.

Healthy U is a small group workshop that is designed to help older adults put life back in their life. Healthy U may be for you if you have long term challenges such as asthma, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes and other life long conditions, or are a caregiver for someone with these challenges. A benefit of participating in Healthy U is the support you will receive finding practical ways to deal with pain, fatigue and depression. This ‘free’ class, which meets once a week for 6 weeks, will help you discover ways to be more physically active, find out how to eat healthier and practice ways to relax and deal with stress.

The first Healthy U Workshop will begin on March 24, 2011 at the Area Agency on Aging Annex, 800 Park Avenue West, Mansfield from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

To sign up or for more information, contact Sarah at 800-522-5680 or 419-522-5612, ext. 1187.
