Breeze Long Term Conditions Programme
What is the Breeze Long Term Conditions Programme?Breeze is a comprehensive self-management programme for people living with one or more long-term conditions. It has been specifically designed to support people with long-term conditions to not only develop the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to manage their condition, but also to help them keep active in their lives. It aims to sustain and spread self-management support to others and reframe how people view their role as a patient and access health service activities.
How Long is the Breeze Programme?Six weeks - participants attend six interactive sessions, each one lasting two hours. Participants also have the option to attend the weekly Breeze low intensity exercise activity session and also the Breeze Digital Inclusion session – these sessions will run throughout the life of the programme and offer an opportunity for participants to sustain behaviour change, social inclusion and improved self-management of their condition.
What do the six sessions include?The sessions support and motivate people to take an active role in their own health and are delivered in a friendly and informal environment that encourages shared learning.
Each session is themed and covers a different topic and is delivered by a specialist within the field – including dieticians, welfare and benefits, assistive technology and mental health and wellbeing.
