Q: I am experiencing some new health symptoms. Where is the best place to start?

A: The best place to start when faced with new physical or mental health concerns would be your primary care physician.  Also, many Medicare Advantage plans and employment retirement plans offer access to an on-call nurse case manager, who could be helpful.

Q: How can the Area Agency on Aging help with my newly diagnosed chronic disease?

A: The Area Agency on Aging offers Living Healthy workshops in Forsyth County and several surrounding counties. These workshops offer needed support, help dealing with pain and fatigue, information about making healthier nutrition and exercise choices and suggestions on better ways to talk with your doctor and family about your health.  These workshops are for anyone dealing with a chronic or limiting health condition, as well as for their caregivers. Call 336-904-0300 for information.
