How to get involved with Living Well
The service accepts self-referral as well as referrals from any healthcare professional.
Once someone is referred to the service an appointment is made to attend for an initial assessment with a nurse.
This appointment will enable St Michael’s to set up an individualised programme to help support and enable you to live well.
Attendance is then on a drop-in basis for as long or as short a time as you need.
A light lunch is served between 12 noon and 2pm Suggested minimum donation £2
Educational workshops include:
- Stress management
- Financial information
- Planning ahead
- Fatigue and breathlessness
