What is the Wellness Advocate Program?
It is a health provider referral program offered by Greater Midland. It will allow you to meet with a wellness coordinator to develop goals and receive one-on-one coaching, social support and built-in accountability to drive more consistent success. Through this program we will help you identify the best options for physical activity that will keep you motivated. This may include working with a personal trainer, for an additional cost or your own wellness advocate who partners with you every step of the way.
How can I participate in the program?
Talk to your health care provider about incorporating more physical activity into your lifestyle. Should your provider approve, have them complete the Wellness Advocate Referral Form, submit it to us and you will be entered into the program at no charge. Our wellness coordinator will contact you to set up your initial appointment. You can also choose to pay a fee to get started rather than obtaining a referral.
Am I right for the program?
The program is for individuals who do not currently participate in at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week, who are at risk for chronic diseases, who are currently dealing with chronic conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc.) or anyone who needs assistance beginning and incorporating an exercise plan into their lifestyle.
What can I expect?
The program lasts for one year. During the first 12 weeks you will receive intensive one-on-one coaching, a core membership to the Greater Midland facility of your choosing, onsite meetings and phone calls. After the first 12 weeks, you will continue to receive less intensive coaching and continued follow-up to help you learn how to be successful on your own.
What is the cost?
Participation is FREE with a signed referral form from a health provider. There are no charges for your visit with the wellness coordinator or wellness adovocate. The only costs you will incur are those options associated with a fee, such as continuing a membership, personal training or nutrition coaching.
What should I bring to my assessment?
You should come to your assessment in comfortable clothing and appropriate exercise shoes. For your initial assessment, please bring a list of your current medications and information regarding your medical history.
