Area Agency on Aging Holding FREE Diabetes Healthy U Workshops at Hawkins Corner


  Posted on January 1, 2015

Good health ensures independence and productivity as we age and often older adults struggle with health challenges.  Approximately 80% of older adults have at least one chronic disease or condition, and 50% have at least two.

Healthy U Diabetes Class 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 with diabetes or are a caregiver for someone with this challenge.  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 Diabetes Workshop will be held on January 12, 2015 at the Area Agency on Aging at Hawkins Corner, 2131 Park Avenue West, Ontario from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This class is FREE and is open to anyone of any age, but you must register prior to the class.
