Media and Interested Parties

The Social Services Division at Clackamas County is offering a free, six-week workshop series on living your best with chronic conditions.

Facilitators at the workshop will provide people with the tools to manage their own condition. Facilitators do not give advice, but rather share techniques and tools to help people find hope and useful options for feeling better while living with a chronic condition.

Trained peer leaders point out techniques and tools to help you expand your quality of life while living with your condition (or that of a loved one). Participants learn self-management techniques to fight fatigue, problem solve, make decisions and reduce stress. Additional topics include action planning, relaxation techniques, healthy food choices, physical activity and helpful ways to communicate with others, including your provider.

Caregivers are welcome to take this training. Participants will receive a free resource book and relaxation CD to support their continued journey to wellness.

To reserve your spot or ask questions, please call the Family Caregiver Support Program at 503-650-5605.
