Flora Henderson Thistle Foundation“We believe that life is for living.” Lifestyle Management for Long Terms Conditions
Lifestyle Management• Lifestyle management addresses common needs, concerns and hopes people have when living with a long term condition.• The service is staff led, but co-facilitated by peer volunteers who have come through the programme and have personal experience of a long term condition.• The 10 x 3 h sessions are informed by person-centred working, solution focused practice and medical rehabilitation programmes.
Reach• Thistle provides services in Craigmillar & across central belt of Scotland.• In 2011/12 we supported 233 people in 15 courses, which includes 1-to-1 consults on a limited basis.• The service supports ~ 15 active volunteers.• . We receive 35 referrals per month (2011/12).• 73% report at least one long term condition• 13% report two or more
Outcomes• As a result of our programme, people increase their confidence, ability to cope, and mood.• As a result of improving their situation, we notice that people want to stay connected through volunteering.• People who access our service value peer support highly, and volunteers say it helps them maintain and continue positive health behaviours.• We notice that people use lifestyle management skills to better manage relapses and sometimes use other services differently
What Makes “The Difference”• Personal outreach for people in complex situations: there is a need for persistence and a personal approach.• - encourage access of other services & follow up• A non-expert approach which is about noticing small changes and exploring what helps a person move on.• An inclusive approach• - it’s ok to drop out and come back later• - it’s ok to stop volunteering and use the service• - promoting choice (not exclusion criteria)
