Support and Education for Your Healthier Life
Holy Cross Hospital can help you keep your mind active and your body fit through an array of educational classes for older adults. And, if you are coping with illness, our support groups can give you the tools you need to manage your disease, as well as share experiences and practical advice with people suffering from the same health problem.
Holy Cross Hospital classes run the gamut from leisure activities for the elderly and programs promoting wellness for seniors—to workshops to improve your driving skills or to stimulate your interest in the arts. More than 20 classes are available at the hospital’s Silver Spring location—or at convenient locations throughout the community.
You can try line dancing, seated yoga or water aerobics; and learn how to de-clutter your home—or to de-clutter your mind by improving your memory. And you can better understand how to take control of your health through our comprehensive Chronic Disease Self-Management course.

- Holy Cross Hospital Support Groups are one of our most important resources for older adults who are facing an acute illness—or have a chronic health problem. The groups provide a forum in which to share medical information and resources, as well as personal stories.
A support group can be a tool for healthy stress management during a difficult time in your life—as well as a safe place for emotional and practical support. There are groups focused on specific disease diagnoses, such as breast cancer, stroke and diabetes.
Our Bereavement Support Group can provide grief management for you during the challenging time following the loss of a loved one—and our caregivers support group can help those of you caring for a family member or friend with a serious illness. There is also a group just for people who have made the healthy decision to stop smoking. We also offer some of the area’s only Spanish-language support groups.
