Disability Network Oakland & Macomb is excited to host a 10-week workshop on living well with a disability.
The healthier you are, the more you are able to do.
This 10-week workshop is designed for people with disabilities who want to learn new skills, meet new people and improve their quality of life by improving their health. Learning healthy lifestyle habits is possible and fun with the support of peers.
Living Well Michigan Workshop is based on the Independent Living Philosophy that emphasizes personal choice, self-determination and peer support as essential components for living independently in the community. Participants in Living Well Michigan Workshop develop independent living skills such as goal setting, problem solving and communication skills and have the opportunity to practice them in a supportive peer environment.
People who participate in Living Well report:
• Improved outlook
• Positive changes in daily activities
• Goal achievement
• Reduced limitations
• Reduced healthcare costs
