Learn about depression through a fun game of BINGO. This entertaining game teaches older adults about the signs, symptoms, and treatment options for depression. We screen for depression as well as other behavioral health disorders, including bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Refreshments, door prizes, and giveaways are provided.

Learn how to safely and effectively manage your chronic disease or diabetes through strategies and techniques pertaining to exercise, strengthening and flexibility, managing medications, communication with family, friends, and doctors, nutrition, decision making, and evaluating new treatments.
These strategies can delay health deterioration, improve function, and address the problems that people confront in their everyday lives. The 2-1/2 classes are held once a week for 6 weeks and are highly participative. Support and success are utilized to build confidence in your ability to manage your health and maintain an active and happy life.
