Positive Self-Management Program for those 50 years and over

July 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Our online Positive Self-Management Program for those 50 years and over with HIV is happening every Tuesday night 6pm-8.30pm for six weeks, commencing Tuesday 28 July and ending Tuesday 1 September.

This program can help improve your quality of life. The sessions are highly interactive, where mutual support and success will build your confidence in your ability to manage your own health and maintain an active and fulfilling life. As well as addressing other challenges such as depression, loneliness, isolation and stigma. By participating in this program, you will gain valuable knowledge and skills to manage your HIV and your general health.

Subjects covered in the program include:

• Connect with others and breakdown that isolation.

• How to best integrate medication regimens into your daily life so they can be taken consistently.

• Techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fear, fatigue, pain and isolation.

• Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance.

• Nutrition.

• Evaluating symptoms.

• Communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals such as your doctor.

And lots more!
