JumpStrt Diabetes Management Program
Living with a Chronic Disease
Diabetes and chronic diseases can be challenging for mature adults, but they don’t have to be a barrier to aging well and enjoying life! With proper care and support, mature adults can manage their conditions and overcome their limitations. Aging and quality of life are influenced by many factors, such as genetics, lifestyle, environment, social support, and health care. By adopting healthy behaviors like quitting smoking, eating well, being physically active, getting enough sleep, and managing stress, mature adults with diabetes and chronic diseases can improve their quality of life and live life to the fullest!
Remember: Diabetes or other chronic diseases is nothing to be ashamed of. There is no blame. The diagnosis of diabetes is a turning point in our lives and we have the choice to decide the path we will take with it. Let it be a wake-up call to a healthier, energetic life. A life embracing balance, wise food choices and plenty of physical activity is a life well lived!
Our philosophy, at the Red Coral Wellness and Retirement Resort, for managing chronic diseases is all about taking a proactive approach! We believe that knowledgeable and motivated patients are the key to managing their disease and living their best life. That’s why we work with our patients to create a personalized care plan that puts them in the driver’s seat.
We use state-of-the-art digital health solutions to monitor your self-management data, including diet, physical activity, sleep, stress, allergies, social activities, and environmental factors. This helps us understand what affects your disease control and identify preventive actions.
We also provide continuous education in classroom and interactive on-line self-education, monitoring, and support to help you make the necessary lifestyle changes. And with access to care by multidisciplinary healthcare providers, we can intervene early if there are any potential health complications.
The JumpStart Program consists of two programs that are designed to help you transform your perspective on chronic disease management, obesity, and positive lifestyle changes. The first program, Lotus JumpStart, is a 4-day program that will immerse you in a comfortable setting with a holistic approach to health management and wellness. You’ll have access to our state-of-the-art digital health solutions, professional healthcare professionals, expert coaches and nutritionists, and educational sessions to help accelerate you towards your healthy balanced living goals.
The second program, Lotus Circle, is a monthly one-day group meeting with our healthcare team and guest speakers. Here, we’ll review how we are following our care and wellness plans, share ideas among ourselves, and learn more from our guest speakers about topics like obesity and weight management.
