Arthritis Support Group

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

If you have a chronic illness such as arthritis, you know that dealing with chronic pain and other symptoms can often feel like an uphill battle. It can be tempting to shut yourself off and stay inside. Finding a group of people who understand what you’re experiencing, who understand what it’s like to live with chronic illness and chronic pain, can be a great way to find the inner strength to face the challenge of your condition and live a fuller life. This group will share tips of care with each other, learn from others, and even go on outings. If you have a form of arthritis or care for someone who does, join us! Limit 25 Room 303

seniors excercising in pool

   In addition to the arthritis support group meetings each month at the Senior Center, join others with arthritis at Beyond Aquatics on Wednesdays from 1:00-2:00 pm for a weekly exercise class in warm water.  Warm water is the preferred way to exercise when one has arthritis. You will get exercise, move more easily, feel better, gain strength and may even lose a little weight. 

   Sessions will be led by Diana O'Daniel-Barfield. Diana has rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and has found beneficial effects from using this therapy pool herself. She has years of dance training and teaching dance as well as currently training with an aqua physical therapist herself.

   Sessions will be $10 per class. This is a 50% discounted rate over the typical daily rate. Diana is doing this without any compensation. Please come early to sign the waiver and pay the fee. There are other plans available as well if you would like to get more involved on an individual basis. 

   Bring your own towel. Bathing suits or shorts and t-shirts are good choices. There are 4 bath/changing rooms with showers. I recommend coming with swim gear underneath street clothes so we can get started quickly.
