Living Well Moyle
Living Well Moyle is an approach that was launched in 2016 to enable people in local communities, especially those who are older or require support to remain independent, to live the lives they want.
Living Well Moyle - Evaluation Report, The Dalriada Pathfinder Partnership, 2020
The report demonstrates the positive impacts of the Living Well approach - improving the wellbeing of participants, benefits to staff and volunteers involved in delivering services and community connections, and early evidence that it has reduced reliance on unscheduled care services.
Living Well Moyle aims to:
- positively change the lives of people living with long-term health conditions
- enhance their wellbeing and quality of life
- increase their independence and social connectivity
- help them to achieve their personal goals and aspirations
- bolster the skills, experiences and resources within the voluntary,community, health and social care sectors in the Moyle area including people in the local community.
Dealing with ongoing health issues or loss can result in individuals becoming isolated and disconnected from the outside world. We know that people are happiest and healthiest as active, valued members of their communities, irrespective of their health conditions. Many active groups throughout Moyle are doing excellent work to support Living Well and are providing a range of activities. Volunteers are vital to the success of Living Well, an approach that was first developed in Cornwall.
