Program Description: The Enhance Wellness program is an accessible, low cost, comprehensive health promotion program for older adults with chronic health conditions. The belief in self efficacy is the core philosophy of Enhance Wellness. The program is participant driven and self-managed with a focus on increased physical and social activity and independence. The program is evidenced based and has shown to improve both physical and emotional functioning in the lives of participating older adults.
The Enhance Wellness team consists of a registered nurse and a social worker, who work with participants to identify their strengths and risks. A detailed questionnaire is used to develop an Enhance Wellness plan that will be created to focus on areas the participant chooses to work on. These members of the team will offer ongoing encouragement, feedback, and monitoring, as well as help with problem solving, health education, and if indicated, referral to support groups and additional services.
