People living with multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular dystrophy (MD), post-polio syndrome (PPS) or spinal cord injury (SCI) are more likely to struggle to stay healthy as they grow older. They may be dealing with one or more secondary conditions, have problems managing their day-to-day activities, and trouble staying active in their social lives and communities. EnhanceWellness is a community program delivered by Sound Generations locally in Seattle and across the US. EnhanceWellness helps individuals achieve a health-related behavior goal of their choice. The goal could be increasing physical activity, reducing anxiety, or self-management of a chronic condition, among many others.
EnhanceWellness has been shown to work for older adults (it's evidence-based). We're interested in learning if EnhanceWellness will work for people aging with a long-term physical disability.
