AAFS Seniors learn about self-care at educational workshop

Arab American Family Services (AAFS) staff representing the Elderly Services Department recently held a Self-Care Workshop for Seniors ages 60 and over to help them learn ways to reduce stress. The guest speaker, Alyssa, a registered nurse, spoke to more than a dozen Seniors about learning how to love themselves. She explained how part of self-care is knowing when to say “no” because Seniors’ health is just as important as anyone else’s. She shared about how important it is to love yourself by spending at least one hour a day taking care of yourself. For example, disconnecting from the world, shutting off your cell phone, taking a walk, and working out are some of the ways our Seniors were encouraged to practice self-care. AAFS thanks AgeOptions, our guest speaker, and our wonderful Seniors for a successful workshop.
