Our Wellness for Independence® suite of programs focus on the prevention and management of chronic conditions for older people.
From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, the programs focus on a range of areas to help keep you living independently in your own home.
The Wellness for Independence® programs are backed by clinical research and consist of practical, easy-to-follow solutions to help you stay well. It’s simple things like helping you to change daily activities such as what you eat or how much you exercise and to better manage chronic health conditions. Or if you find it difficult to socialise with friends, family or the local community, Wellness for Independence® can help you stay connected to them and enjoy the things you like to do.
Wellness for Independence® programs can help you:
- Recognise the signs of chronic illness,
- Access to early diagnosis,
- Understand what your normal vital signs should be,
- Develop ways to reverse the symptoms of some health conditions, prevent conditions worsening and prevent some conditions occurring.
- With staff support, learn how to manage chronic conditions at home and reduce the need for visits to the doctor,
- Improve your general quality of life, independence and wellbeing.
We understand that everyone is different and the support to keep you living well and being active will be different to what other people may need. For that reason, each Wellness for Independence® program begins with a personalised assessment and the development of a personalised health care plan. Your Wellness for Independence® programs will then follow your health care plan which is regularly checked and updated when your needs change.
All that is left to do is choose what Wellness for Independence® programs are best for you.
