BCHD offers a variety of groups to meet specific needs:
Healthier Living: An Introduction to Managing Ongoing Health Conditions
Nobody wants to have a chronic long-term health condition. Unfortunately, most of us will experience two or more of these during our lifetime. This program was designed to teach people living with chronic conditions as well as those who care for them a healthy way to overcome physical and emotional issues that complicate our lives. Sample this program and take this opportunity to define self-management and learn more about managing the work of dealing with prolonged health issues, managing continuing daily activities, and managing the changing emotions brought about by chronic health conditions. Are you newly diagnosed with a health condition? Are you living with a condition and need to take better control of your treatment? Do you want to learn more about your healthcare? This may be the program for you.
Next Group: Thursday, October 11 through Thursday, November 15
Time: 9:30am - Noon
