About LiveWell

Providing accessible, personalized, evidence-based community wellness programming across Nova Scotia

Live Well is a group exercise program that focuses on improving the physical and mental health of Nova Scotians with chronic conditions.*

LiveWell programs:

  • Create smooth transitions for patients between hospital care and community health.

  • Deliver care in the most appropriate setting for promoting and sustaining health and wellness.

  • Improve health outcomes of individuals with a focus on secondary prevention and chronic disease self-management.

  • Reduce health disparities through the elimination of both real and perceived barriers to participation.

 

LiveWell supports both physician and self-referrals and offers a comprehensive intake process, supervision, and progression within a socially supportive environment. It embraces a person-centric approach that focuses on secondary prevention and chronic disease self-management. LiveWell encourages participants to take control of their own health.

*Chronic conditions are defined broadly as conditions that last one year or more and require ongoing medical attention, or limit activities of daily living or both.
