Taking Control Wellness Program
You’ve been diagnosed with epilepsy. What next? Well, one step forward is to take control of your condition and live your best possible life. Despite the multitude of types of seizures and a varying amount to which each can be controlled, everyone no matter who they are or what type of seizures they have can learn to control the effects the take on their lives. That’s the empowering spirit that lives at the core of our Taking Control Wellness Program.
Is This Program For You?
The Taking Control Wellness Program is specifically designed for adults who are ready and willing to confront their epilepsy and become an active participant in minimizing its impact and working towards an optimal level of health and wellness.
What Is Involved?
You are the centre of everything in this health-promotion approach. We’ve designed the program to consider your entire being – the physical, emotional, intellectual social and spiritual – and created twelve guidelines based on the Andrews Reiter Epilepsy Research Program that provides a step-by-step approach to understanding and controlling your condition.
Our goal is to empower and enrich your life by providing you with the tools – like understanding and using triggers, aura and stress relief to control seizures – to live a healthy and happy life. While it may not be possible to take control of all forms of epilepsy all the time, it is possible to reduce the negative effects of living with epilepsy and to enjoy the positive effects of increased self-esteem and overall wellness.
How Long Is The Program
Since we actively tailor the program to each person, the length of time it takes to complete varies from person to person. With that in mind, you should be prepared to commit to a one a half hour long session once a week for twelve weeks.
How To Enroll
Enrollment is easier than ordering a pizza. Just get in touch with our Support coordinator by email or phone at (403) 230-2764.
A Debt of Gratitude
Creating our Taking Control program wouldn’t have been possible without the work of the Andrews Reiter Epilepsy Research Program.
