Nutrition refers to the foods and beverages you consume for sustenance. If you want to live a long and healthy life, it’s important to eat a healthy, balanced diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains.
Incorporating good nutrition into your daily routine helps reduce the risk of potentially serious issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease.
At CHW Cares, the team offers nutritional education and counseling as part of their health coaching for chronic care management or the “concierge care for seniors” program.
If you qualify for Medicare and sign up for Medicare Advantage with CHW Cares’ partner, Bright Healthcare, you automatically qualify for the CHW Cares nutrition program.
At CHW Cares, the nutrition program occurs in three steps:
At your initial consultation, your CHW Cares provider reviews your medical history and asks about your goals. Afterward, they conduct a physical exam and order additional testing to assess your needs.
Your CHW Cares provider develops a custom nutrition program based on your goals, medical history, and the results of your tests.
You meet with your CHW Cares provider (in the office or at your home) once every three months. At each checkup, your provider monitors your progress and adjusts your treatment plan as necessary.
The nutrition program at CHW Cares offers various benefits, including:
In addition, the nutrition program provides one-on-one counseling at home or in the clinic with a certified health coach. At each meeting, your coach helps you set (and achieve) health and nutrition goals. They can even help you develop strategies to overcome barriers to your success.
