Manage Your Pain!

You’ve heard of managing your money and managing your time and managing your closet – how about organizing your pain ????  A new and exciting program is being offered by HESSCO through Stanford University.

The My Life My Health workshop is a 6 week program designed and researched by the Stanford University Medical Center. The program helps individuals living with a challenging persistent or chronic health condition. Attendees learn strategies developed and tested by researchers that help you to set and meet personal goals, identify and try out simple techniques to improve your quality of life, improve communication with your doctor, increase your energy levels and more. Research shows that people who attend this program show improvement in exercise, symptom management, improved self-reported general health, less fatigue and more. According to the Stanford University Medical Center research, workshop participants have fewer hospitalizations and less outpatient visits with  their physicians. Contact HESSCO Elder Services for information about the next available workshop at 781-784-4944.
