Well-being and health check-up and coaching for informal carers

With the help of the electronic wellbeing and health check-up, an informal carer can receive focused information on wellbeing and health. After the check-ups, the carer can take part in electronic coaching programmes, which are:

- Weight control
- Heathy diet
- Quitting smoking
- Reducing alcohol consumption
- Sleep coaching
- Stress control
- Optimism
- Positive interaction in a partnership
- Good deeds
- Relationship coaching
- Being thankful
- Solving conflicts in a partnership
- Exercise programmes: For asthmatics, diabetics, people with coronary artery disease or high blood pressure, people with musculoskeletal disorders

If the informal carer takes care of a loved one over 65 years of age, they can find out more about the matter through the Support for informal carers or from the workers of an informal carers' activity centre.

Those taking care of a loved one under the age of 65 can receive information from a worker of the Support for informal care.

Implementing the electronic wellbeing and health check-up

1. After reading the instructions below, click open the Informal carer's health and wellbeing check-up link under Read more.

2. Create a user name for yourself and give an email address for receiving the coaching messages. You can carry out the check-up without the user name and email address; you can write your name down in these fields, for example. Please note that you cannot use the coaching programmes without an email address.

3. Once you have completed the wellbeing and health check-up, click Show report at the bottom of the page. You will be presented with a report of your results and instructions based on them at the bottom of the page.

If you cannot carry out the electronic wellbeing and health check-up and you feel that your health state should be examined, contact your occupational health care services, student health care services or your health station.
