About Health and Geriatric Care Education and Consult Services

Looking at whole health, education can be done to help you better understand health issues and provide additional accountability that may help you move toward better health. Geriatric Care Education helps you advocate and navigate eldercare. Consult Services can be provided for both Health and Geriatric Care.

Services

Individual Health Education and Individual Geriatric Care Education are provided by phone with strict confidentiality.

All services are available nationally.

What is Integrative Health Education?

Health Education encompasses an Integrative Medicine approach to whole health including mind, body, and spirit, mindfulness, and healthy aging. Health Education can also help you with accountability as you work toward achieving your goals.
*Health Education is not advice, psychotherapy, diagnosis, treatment, and or a prescription.
Resources and referrals can be provided.

Is Health Education for you or your group?

  • Do you need additional help to understand and achieve positive change in health?
  • Do you need additional accountability to help move toward better health?
  • Are you interested in learning about the multiple aspects that make up whole health?
  • Are you interested in learning how whole health influences optimal health?
  • Are you interested in learning about healthy aging?
  • Are you interested in learning about various health resources that will help you achieve your living life list goals?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Integrative Health Education may be an additional health resource for you.
