Edmonds seniors who want help improving their physical or emotional health can take part in a free wellness program through the Edmonds Senior Center.
At the beginning of 2012, the center received a grant from the Verdant Health Commission and started this program. In the past year, more than 90 people have participated.
If you or someone you know would like to join, here are details, as provided by the center.
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 6-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.
