Living Healthy Workshop Offered in Kihei
By Maui Now Staff
The County of Maui Department of Housing and Human Concerns’ Office on Aging will host a healthy-living workshop this month.
The “Better Choices…Better Health” workshop provides practical information, tools and support to people of all ages who are interested in incorporating healthier habits into their lives. It is also designed to help individuals with chronic conditions better manage their health.
The workshop will consist of a series of six classes that focus on learning and implementing practical skills used to stay healthy and control symptoms through relaxation, nutrition, improved communication skills, medication management, and exercise.
Participants will develop achievable “action plans” aimed at creating positive changes and greater confidence.
The workshop will be held on Thursdays from 5:30 to 8 p.m., starting October 25 and ending on December 6. There will be no workshop held on Thanksgiving.
The workshops will be held at the Kalama Heights second floor Chapel at 101 Kanani Street.
Participants will receive “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 3rd Edition,” and an audio relaxation CD, “Time for Healing”.
The cost for the six-session workshop is $10 for those 60 and older, and $35 for those under 60. For those experiencing financial hardship, scholarships applications are available to complete and submit prior to the first workshop.
Advance registration is required as space is limited to 15 participants per class.
Caregivers are also encouraged to attend.
