What is a Well-being Advisor?

ExtraCare’s Well-being Service supports all residents to be proactive in managing their own health. Our Well-being Advisors empower residents to make informed decisions about their lifestyle and health via well-being assessments.

What exactly is the role of the Well-being Advisor? Chrishanti Thornton, the Well-being Advisor at Lark Hill Village in Nottingham, explains...

Our overall aim is to promote the health and well-being of our residents and we  achieve this by carrying out annual assessments, health promotion sessions and drop-in sessions.

The Well-being Advisors across the locations are allowed to do the following:

All of the above are in line with ExtraCare’s policies.

The Well-being Advisors are unable to do the following:

The Well-being Advisor may refer residents to external primary care services such as a GP or Practice Nurse if they find any significant health issue.

The assessments that the Well-being Advisor carries out allow them to keep an up-to-date record of your overall health. However, it is also important that you assist us by letting us know if you have had any significant changes to your health or a new diagnosis.
