Cornwall has a higher than average ageing population meaning there is an increased demand on NHS funds. Three out of every five people aged over 60 in England suffer from a long-term condition, and as the population ages, this proportion is likely to rise.
There are 40,000 people in Cornwall who are out of work, of which some 23,000 receive health related benefits.
The estimated cost to the NHS of obesity related conditions locally will rise to about £161 million by 2015.
“By supporting people with their long term conditions, through personal support plans and increasing their capacity to self-care, we can help to improve their mental as well as physical wellbeing”. (Outcome 2 from Health and Well-being Strategy 2013-2015).
Our one day Wellness Workshop will give you tools and techniques to support health needs. Using techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness, Life Coaching and Training, LifeMOT will build on the skills and abilities people already have to give a better understanding about how to make positive change and develop their own personalised support plan to create the best possible health for each individual.
The one day workshop is for adults with a health diagnosis and anyone who will be supporting the individual. Consultants, GP’s, Nurses, Care workers, Volunteers, Family, friends etc. Empowering people to make positive lifestyle choices can reduce the need for medications, speed up recovery and reduce time spent in GP surgeries or emergency out of hours call outs.
