September 6, 2016
Better Choices, Better Health (Sep 6-Oct 11, 2016)
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Creekside Community Center
9801 Penn Ave. South
Bloomington, MN

This 6-week course increases confidence and skills in managing care for yourself. It is designed to build skills in identifying issues, setting goals, solving problems, communicating, working with health care providers, and finding out where to go for more information. The program covers new topics each week and provides opportunities for interaction and group problem solving. The workshop leaders are more like coaches who guide participants through the topics. The answer to someone's question is usually found in the room from another participant who has gone or is going through a similar situation. The program serves those who are 60 years of age or better who are living with a chronic condition themselves or are caring for someone who is. For more information or to register for this course, call the Normandale Center for Healing & Wholeness at 952-929-1698.
