Live Well in Westport

Looking for a new lease on life? Want to age successfully and in comfort? Do you want to be a take-charge kind of person? Then LIVE WELL is right for you!  

The Westport Weston Health District will offer Live Well, a free six week workshop at the Westport Center for Senior Activities on Thursdays May 22 through June 26 from 5:30 -8 p.m. Participants are requested to bring a light supper – dessert and beverages will be provided. Live Well is underwritten by a Preventive Health Grant from the CT Department of Public Health.

Live Well is facilitated by specially trained leaders, and provides opportunities for interaction and group problem solving related to common issues experienced by most people living with health concerns or conditions. “We are more like coaches”, says Monica Wheeler, Community Health Director at WWHD, a facilitator of the Live Well Program. “The answer to someone’s question usually comes from the participants in the room.”

Each week, participants get the support they need to enhance their lives, find practical ways to deal with stress, anxiety, and pain, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand new treatment choices, and learn better ways to talk with doctors and family about health concerns.

So whatever your health concerns – weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, chronic pain, anxiety, Lyme disease, or being the caregiver of another, our Live Well workshop can help you change your life and live it WELL!
