Chronic Disease Patient Support Group

October 21, 10:00 am to 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Third of the month, happening 4 times

Patients and their caregivers managing chronic diseases such as COPD, diabetes, heart failure and stroke are invited to this educational and emotional support group.

The group meets the third Thursday of every month from 10 to 11 a.m. at Penn State Health St. Joseph – Spring Ridge, 2607 Keiser Blvd., Wyomissing.

The meetings offer a safe environment, activities, shared experiences and information sessions from a variety of health care professionals, said Clinical Disease Coordinator Morgan Boyer.

“Chronic diseases play into exacerbations that force patients to seek emergency services that could be prevented,” she said. “If they have a person who keeps them on point, someone to talk to for support, they have a greater likelihood of success. The goal is for the client to own their disease.”

The group meets in a large room that allows for proper social distancing. Participants are screened for COVID-19 and must wear masks. A Zoom option is available. For more information or to register, call 610-378-2331.
