Are you struggling with a health condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, fibromyalgia, or arthritis?
The Healthy-U Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is proven to improve quality of life -- and save money by reducing health care expenses. It`s free to adults of any age with any on-going health condition and/or their caregivers.
Healthy U is a small group workshop that focuses on problem solving and building self-confidence to help people maintain their health and manage chronic health conditions. Many people struggle to manage symptoms of chronic disease -- especially older adults who are more likely to be living with more than one chronic illness. In 2009, the Surgeon General estimated that 50% of older Americans were living with at least two chronic health conditions (at least 80% had one).
The workshops are led by trained facilitators -- usually non-health professionals who have a chronic disease themselves. Participants meet for six weeks, once a week, for two and a half hours, and learn to control their symptoms through: relaxation techniques, diet and exercise changes, managing sleep and fatigue, using medications correctly, and communication with family members, friends and health care providers.
Healthy U, developed at Stanford University as the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, is successful because it was developed with input from people who have chronic diseases themselves. COA is offering the workshop locally through a grant from the Ohio Department of Aging and the federal Administration on Aging.
For information about workshop dates and locations, click here or call (513) 721-1025 and ask for Healthy-U.
Council on Aging is looking for individuals and organizations who are interested in offering the Healthy-U program. Healthy-U leaders are either adults (preferably with a chronic health condition) or professionals such as nurses, care managers, health educators, etc. Healthy-U leaders:
- receive specialized training and easy-to-use instructional materials
- learn new skills and gain valuable experience in program delivery
- experience the satisfaction of changing lives with a proven effective program

National Healthcare Decisions Day
This website provides access to helpful information and forms to help individuals and families in planning for their healthcare needs and wishes.
National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. NHDD is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
NHDD exists as a 50-state annual initiative to provide clear, concise, and consistent information on healthcare decision-making to both the public and providers/facilities through the widespread availability and dissemination of simple, free, and uniform tools (not just forms) to guide the process. NHDD entails 50 independent, but coordinated, state and local events (necessitated by the difference in state laws and dynamics) supported by a national media and public education campaign.
In all respects, NHDD is inclusive and brings a variety of players in the larger healthcare/legal/religious community together to work on a common project, to the benefit of patients, families, and providers. NHDD is not prescriptive; it allows for and fosters creativity.
A key goal of NHDD is to demystify healthcare decision-making and make the topic of advance care planning inescapable. On NHDD, no one in the U.S. should be able to open a paper, watch TV, view the internet, see a physician or lawyer, or go to a healthcare facility without being confronted with the topic of advance care planning. Among other things, NHDD helps people understand that advance healthcare decision-making includes much more than living wills; it is a process that should focus first on conversation and choosing an agent.
Across the country, every healthcare facility will participate as the flagship venues for the public engagement. Other participating organizations/facilities that have their own physical spaces will engage in activities as well. Those organizations that lack physical spaces will work in conjunction with others or at non-healthcare venues (libraries, grocery stores, drug stores, etc.) to support the initiative. A variety of churches, synagogues, and mosques around the country will also support the effort by highlighting the importance of advance care planning with their congregations.

Touching Hearts at Home is a non-medical home care company that began in St. Paul/Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1996. We see the opportunity to provide caregiving services to seniors as a privilege that must be met with great integrity, always putting empathy and the belief in the dignity of all people at the forefront of our work.

The need for care and companionship has grown dramatically in recent years as needs continue to rise, and Renae & her staff responded in 2007 by expanding through a network of franchised offices nationwide. Current family caregiver statistics show that more than 50 million people provide care for an ill, disabled or aging family member each year
