Green logo image with the words Living Well Team

The Living Well Team enable people living with a range of health problems and chronic conditions to overcome the barriers, so they can participate in everyday life and improve their health and wellbeing. The team includes Occupational Therapists, Care Coordinators and in collaboration with OneYou Thrive Tribe Health and Wellbeing Coaches. 

The Living Well Team is ideally placed to provide prevention and early intervention solutions in the primary care setting, enabling people to successfully self-manage their conditions and build their resilience. This can minimise crisis situations, prevent further deterioration and promote independence and social inclusion.

Occupational Therapists are skilled in assessing the components of everyday occupations and roles that matter to people, identifying the impact of developmental, physical and mental health conditions on these occupations and devising intervention plans to enable people to overcome areas of dysfunction and engage fully in their day-to-day lives.

Care Coordinators can help people coordinate and navigate their care across multiple agencies. They work as a bridge between different agencies ensuring patients receive appropriate follow up care after discharge from hospital, having 'What matters to me' conversations and supporting people to engage with the relevant healthcare agencies. 

Health and Wellbeing Coaches empower people to make informed decisions and conscious choices about their healthcare, get clarity about their self-management, become more confident, be proactive, take ownership of their life, focus on what matters to them and find solutions on how they can better manage their conditions.

The team will also work in partnership with other health and social care professionals to respond to crises in the home, keep people as safe as possible, enhancing independence and preventing unnecessary hospital admissions.

The Living Well Team will be -

  • Inclusive: All adults, all conditions, all areas of occupational performance
  • Accessible: simple referral process, local, direct access
  • Responsive: flexible and individualised
  • Comprehensive: Multi-morbidity, assessment, intervention, joint working
