Lifestyle Program

About Sleep has developed an exciting initiative called the “Get Started Lifestyle Program”. We work with you and your doctors to help you improve your lifestyle and develop healthy habits that will improve your general health. A free assessment can be done in our clinic, and then we develop a program to suit each person’s needs. This is when our Allied Health team take over, and they will ensure you have the tools required to establish a healthy lifestyle. If you would like more information about this program, or you would like us to write to your specialist about it, please contact our facilitator Andrew at Andrew@aboutsleep.com.au


Get Started Lifestyle Program for Clients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Supervised by Qualified Health Professionals
About Sleep Lifestyle programs are designed to help you establish healthy habits that will improve your general health and quality of sleep. With the support of treating doctors we develop a program to suit your needs with professional supervision from qualified Allied Health Practitioners including our Dietitian, Exercise Physiologist and Psychologist.
Once you have completed the Get Started program, you can choose how to maintain your new healthy lifestyle.

The Get Started program takes about 12 weeks to complete and introduces you to three key lifestyle factors which are critical to making positive lifestyle changes.
Diet
Exercise
Motivation for Change


Program Flexibility
The program is designed to be flexible so that you can get started as easily as possible. The therapeutic focus of each program is tailored to individual needs and sessions can be undertaken in either group or individual format. About Sleep recommends group sessions where possible as this enables more frequent professional contact and has the added benefit of developing peer support networks.

Therapy Choices
The Get Started program consists of 10 therapy units which can be used in combination. You can also consult the program therapists in supplementary sessions for additional support whilst undertaking the Get Started program if you choose.

Professional Assessment
The first step to take if you wish to participate in the Get Started program is to complete an Intake Assessment. The assessment gathers information about your sleep and medical history and eating, weight and exercise patterns which is reviewed by the About Sleep Allied Health team when making recommendations for your program.

About Getting Started
The Get Started program is NOT intended to be a comprehensive treatment intervention that will deliver your ultimate health outcomes. However, it will enable you to understand how each of the three key areas affects your health, how you can take control of them and how professional support will help you to achieve lasting benefits.

Fees
About Sleep Lifestyle interventions are PRIVATE clinical services. Get Started program fees must be paid in full, prior to commencement of your first clinical session.

Some participants may be eligible for Medicare benefits with appropriate referral from treating doctors. Medicare and private health benefits will only be rebated after completion of each session. Fees are non-refundable and the program must be completed within 4 months of the first session.
