How It Works

  • You will meet for 16 weeks in 1 hour group session or 30 minute private sessions.
  • You will partner with your OT to determine in which facets of your life you want to begin implementing healthier habits.
  • You will reorganize current routines and develop new ones to create a balance of healthy habits.
  • Receive support and guidance in implementing recommendation changes from other health professionals.
  • The result = a better quality of life, prevention of chronic conditions, management of diabetes, greater energy, improved health, and meeting your personal goals.
