Somerset Town Supervisor Dan Engert wants area senior citizens to know about a great program coming to the Somerset Town Hall. The Niagara County Office of the Aging has, through NY Connect, offered to provide a chronic disease self-management program in the town, and any senior who has a chronic disease is eligible.
Chronic disease is a long-lasting condition that can be controlled but not cured. Many times our seniors must manage multiple chronic issues. The series will give participants direct access to nurses and medical professionals whose aim is to teach/train them in disease control solutions.
The Thursday classes will be held from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the town hall, 8700 Haight Road, from Oct. 24 through Nov. 21 and again Dec. 5. It’s OK if you are not able to attend all of the sessions; they provide a book at the first class with a handout that refers you to the optional reading related to each class topic.
Pre-registration is preferred but anybody who wants to attend any session is welcome. For more information or to register, call the town supervisor’s office at 795-3575 or the Office for the Aging at 438-3030.
