Healthy Aging: Chronic Disease Education and Disease Prevention Programs
Holy Cross Hospital is helping seniors maintain their good health as they grow older—and to live full active lives despite chronic illness.
At Holy Cross Hospital’s Senior Source wellness education center, we offer a full range of free preventive health classes, fitness and bodywork classes, as well as physician-led wellness education lectures in which noted specialists discuss illness prevention.
Senior Fit is Holy Cross Hospital’s award-winning fitness and wellness for seniors program, which we offer in 21 locations throughout the community. We also provide free illness prevention screenings to help detect disorders early or to prevent them from occurring.
Holy Cross Hospital has developed a number of programs to help seniors with chronic illness live well despite their health problems. Classes in disease management and exercise are available for seniors coping with illnesses such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes.
And a unique six-week program for men and women with long-term chronic medical conditions, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, focuses on illness management and teaches seniors how to take control of their own health. Call 301-754-8800 to find out more.
