Diabetes Wellness Program

The Diabetes Wellness Program provides supervised exercise, education and support throughout your personal journey while implementing lifestyle changes and taking control of your health.

Working with an exercise professional who may communicate with members of your current medical team, you will participate in an exercise program appropriate for individuals with diabetes.

The purpose and guiding principle of the Diabetes Wellness Program is that you should remain as functional and independent as possible, within the restraints of your diagnoses and treatment. Through the use of exercise integrated into your current care, you main maintain and/or improve your physical well-being, emotional well-being, and overall quality of life, promoting healthy behaviors and disease management strategies.

As changes occur in your health status, team members will adapt the program to meet your individual needs.

This is an 8 week program, consisting of 16-1 hour sessions or a small group training format.
