Free Workshop At Randall Residence

Living with diabetes requires both good medical care and effective self-management – knowing what makes your blood sugar rise and fall and how to control these day-to-day factors. The Area Agency on Aging offers Healthy U workshops to help people develop the skills and coping strategies needed to manage their diabetes.

The series of six weekly workshops will be held at Randall Residence of Tipp City, 6400 South CR 25A on Tuesdays, June 20 through August 1, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. There is no charge to attend, but space is limited and advance registration is required by contacting the Randall Residence Concierge Desk at 937-667-8200.

Workshops are open to adults who have been diagnosed with diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes, and/or their caregivers. Everyone who completes the course receives the companion textbook, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.

Healthy U/Diabetes is an interactive, small group workshop that has been proven to improve diabetes management by increasing self-confidence and providing new skills so that participants can better manage their disease and feel healthier. Workshop topics include healthier eating; exploring ways to be more physically active; practical ways to deal with pain, fatigue, and depression; improved communication with doctors and family about your health; and finding ways to relax and deal with stress. Participants develop skills and coping strategies to manage their symptoms through action planning, interactive learning, problem-solving, decision-making, and social support.
