As part of Sun Health’s mission to champion healthy living, we are proud to offer our newest community health program: the Sun Health Center for Health & Wellbeing, a nonprofit resource designed to help community members evaluate and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
The Center also specializes in providing education and support for those who have been diagnosed with chronic heart and lung conditions, diabetes and pre-diabetes, or a memory impairment.
Our 2,200-square-foot office, conveniently located at 14719 W. Grand Avenue in Surprise, includes a teaching kitchen, consultation rooms, a massage therapy suite and a community education room. We
are an easy-to-access resource for clients and families desiring personalized support from a dedicated health care team. We can customize a program to suit client needs.
Although the incidence of chronic disease among older adults is rising and impacting individuals’ quality of life, living with a chronic health condition does not have to be limiting. As a Center for Health & Wellbeing client, you can learn new strategies to manage and improve your health with guidance from health professionals, while continuing to have a rich quality of life. The Center also can help you with lifestyle modifications such as stress reduction, smoking cessation, nutrition changes and appropriate physical activity.
Research shows the average patient spends only eight minutes with their doctor at each visit [New York Times report – May 2013.] It is hard to get anything done in eight minutes, let alone ask questions and seek counsel about improving your health. The Center staff bridges the gap by providing resources to help you plan your health and wellbeing goals, and encouraging your success along the way.
Personalized Support for You and Your Family
The Center for Health & Wellbeing specializes in four key areas – heart health, lung health, diabetes and memory care – providing a place for clients, caregivers and health specialists to collaborate and develop a plan for increased quality of life for each client. The Center staff assures clients and family members receive the most up-to-date information and support when learning how to manage chronic health conditions and optimize health and wellbeing by undertaking lifestyle enhancements.
