What People Say About Senior Health Promotion

I was always active and never gave much thought to my health. But, about seven years ago I found out I had diabetes. I tried to follow my doctor’s orders for diet, medication, and exercise, but it wasn’t easy. Then I hurt my knee and that made it even harder to go out and do anything. I figured all of this was just part of getting older, but it made me feel tired and a little depressed. I heard about the Living Healthy program at my local library that EAC Network’s Senior Health Promotion provided. I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did. This wasn’t a lecture…it was an interactive discussion with brainstorming and sharing ideas. We were all helping each other and ourselves at the same time. I learned better ways to deal with my pain and fatigue. The relaxation techniques were great, and I still use them. I also learned about communicating better with my doctors and my family members and we talked about things like eating better, improving my strength and understanding new treatment options. This program has given me a new sense of being in control of my symptoms and my life, and that is priceless.
