Overview

The Live Longer Better Digital programme is a digital self-management programme empowering participants to take charge of their health and wellbeing.

It is available to patients across BNSSG aged 60+ with two or more long term health conditions.

​What is the Live Longer Better programme?
A FREE online programme with 10 parts that will discuss what happens to us as we get older and give practical guidance and tools to help people achieve their potential.  These include:

  • follow along routines for strength, stamina, balance and suppleness;
  • training to keep your brain sharp;
  • building a mood-boosting plan; and
  • social connection, purpose and supporting others.


Participants will complete the programme in a small group of people who also have multiple health conditions; all supported by a health coach.  It's designed to be completed over 10 weeks and is flexible, so participants can complete it at a time, place and pace of their own choosing.

For all queries please contact the Live Longer better team at: info@livelongerbetter.uk
