The class covers ways to reduce stress, relax, manage symptoms, set weekly goals, problem-solve effectively, improve communication, eat well and exercise. It includes a free book.

Classes start April 1, and meet from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays at East County Senior Center, 276 Sky River Parkway, Monroe.

Past participants report feeling an increase in confidence and motivation.

Family members, friends and caregivers can also participate.
