Living Well

March 1st, 2021

Living Well is a recognised self-management support programme, based on the evidence-based Stanford model.

This programme is free of charge and available to adults living with any long-term health condition.

The aim of the programme is to equip and empower adults with practical skills (setting goals, action planning, problem solving) and confidence, so they can manage their health condition better.

Traditionally, this programme has been delivered face-to-face in a classroom setting. However, due to the Covid challenge we have moved to deliver the programme online.

Participant feedback is very positive on our current online Living Well programmes in CHW. The age profile of our current participants ranges from 19 to 87 years of age.

Please note, one-to-one training be given to any participants who need additional supports to get online.

This project has received funding in 6 CHOs from the Government of Ireland’s Slaintecare Integration Fund 2019.
