Are You Struggling with High Blood Pressure?
Get started on the path to a healthy heart with personalized health coaching.
Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or you’ve been struggling to control it, CentraState’s free six-week hypertension management program can help.
Participants will learn self-management and home monitoring skills to empower and boost overall health, plus how to work with your healthcare providers to take an active role in your heart health once the program concludes.
It’s easy to get started! First schedule a face-to-face meeting with a registered nurse health coach at the Star and Barry Tobias Health Awareness Center to discuss and evaluate your health history and medications.
Together, you will develop a plan that focuses on attainable short- and long-term goals and overcoming common barriers to meet these goals. In partnership, participants and health coaches determine the best way to communicate during the course of this program, with options including telephone calls, email or continued face-to-face sessions. By creating a flexible schedule of when and where to meet, you can ensure a dedicated support system and high probability of meeting individualized goals.
Participants will learn how personal choices for diet, exercise and work/life balance may affect heart health. During individual sessions, a health coach will educate on:
- Risk and treatment options
- Prevention of complications
- Monitoring your blood pressure and medication
They will provide support and encouragement by offerings ways to:
- Reduce and manage stress
- Increase relaxation
- Promote nutrition and healthy eating
- Make overall beneficial lifestyle changes
Progress is evaluated at the conclusion of the program and the health coach will make recommendations on how to continue self-management and home monitoring, and work with your doctor.
