A Journey to Wellness

The Journey to Wellness Program is for people who have had MS for a few years and who want to improve their quality of life. It is based on six aspects of health: physical, emotional, intellectual, professional, spiritual and social.

There will be nine meetings of two hours each with one meeting per week in the early evening.

  • 1st meeting: The first meeting is intended to break the ice, define well-being and allow participants to get acquainted in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
  • 2nd meeting: The process of exploring and adopting a lifestyle that promotes well-being. What are the choices?
  • 3rd meeting: Food and exercise.
  • 4th meeting: Ways of becoming an enlightened consumer of health care by taking an active role in your health in order to manage the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
  • 5th meeting: intellectual stimulation and cognitive problems.
  • 6th meeting: Exploration of feelings related to having a chronic illness.
  • 7th meeting: Employment issues along with substitutes such as volunteer work and recreational activities.
