Pain can make everything in your life come to a grinding halt. We have all experienced pain at some point, but when pain becomes an unending reality, you need new tactics and techniques to allow you to live fully in spite of the hurt. Senior Services is offering a no-obligation information session on Monday, August 10 from 12-12:30 pm, where you can learn more about the workshop and ask questions.

Our trained professionals understand that pain sufferers struggle with medication management, sleep deprivation, and a whole host of mental and emotional challenges that tend to follow in the wake of chronic pain. On average, people who participate in the workshop have more energy, less pain, less dependence on others, improved mental health, are more involved in everyday activities, and are more satisfied with their lives, which has been proven effective through multiple studies. Workshop participants will benefit from having gained coping skills, support, confidence, educated techniques, and an overall improvement in their quality of life in spite of the pain!

This excellent evidence-based program is appropriate for those with chronic pain, professional caretakers, and family members of those currently struggling with pain management. Meeting 2.5 hours once per week for six weeks and led by two trained professionals, the class covers such topics as techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation, and poor sleep, appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving health, and much more. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build confidence in one’s ability to manage health and maintain an active and fulfilling life.

Our classes require participants to wear a face mask, practice physical distancing, and cancel if they become sick. Health and safety are very important to us while facilitating in-person programs. The Chronic Pain Self-Management Program is supported by funds from the Older Americans Act. The class size is limited so registration is essential! Register below or call 633-3700.
