PITTSFIELD — Northern Light Sebasticook Valley Hospital is partnering with Healthy Living for ME, a statewide network, to offer workshops in the area of chronic disease self-management education and caregiver support.

These evidence-based workshops are free to participants and designed to help them learn and build the skills they need to manage a number of chronic/ongoing health conditions and/or their unique caregiver situation. The workshops may be offered in person, virtually, or by telephone, according to a news release from the network.

“Joining the Healthy Living for ME network will help us bring more resources to our community that support Maine caregivers and help Mainers manage chronic conditions and improve their overall health and wellness. As a healthcare provider in the community, we are committed to helping build a healthier future for Maine,” said Sherry Tardy, director of community health for the Pittsfield hospital.

“This partnership will help to expand access to our workshops in the Sebasticook Valley region of central Maine, giving more Mainers the tools they need to manage their own ongoing health issues or to get the support and skills to help them as caregivers,” said Jen Paquet, training manager of Healthy Living for ME.
