Self-Management Resources

for Professionals to Use in Supporting Communities


Looking for reliable materials to support your community during COVID-19?  We've assembled some communication tools and supports here. We'll add to these resources weekly so check back regularly. 

Materials can be used in a variety of ways - be creative!  Are you packing a lot of home-delivered meals?  You could print and add a graphic to the delivery.  Are you connecting via email?  You can add a graphic or article to your email.  Are you communicating via newsletter?  Same thing - articles and graphics can be added.  Using social media?  Graphics and videos can be shared or follow the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging Facebook page and share content we post.
