Edmonds Senior Center introduces new wellness programParticipants work one-on-one with a social worker or nurse
At the beginning of 2012 the Edmonds Senior Center received a grant from the Verdant Health Commission and introduced the Enhance Wellness Program.
This is a national program, which has been shown to improve participant’s emotional and physical wellbeing as well as lower the amount of medication and hospitals stays.
During the last year over 90 people have participated in the Enhance Wellness program.
The program is confidential and FREE to all participants.
Participants work one-on-one with a social worker or nurse to identify areas that the client would like to address.
Examples of concerns that may be addressed include but are not limited to: physical activity, weight management, socialization, nutrition, medication management, fall prevention or depression/anxiety.
Participants receive a personalized health action plan that identifies their areas of concern and the steps to take to improve their overall wellbeing. Over the course of the six month program the social worker or nurse monitor and help motivate the participant.
Enrollment is ongoing. If you want to make positive changes in your life, have been diagnosed with a chronic condition or want to be more physically or socially active then Enhance Wellness is for you.
Please contact Michelle Reitan, MSW or Amy Ayers, RN at (425) 774-5555 ext. 113 to enroll in the program or answer any questions.
