Living a healthy lifestyle is about taking care of your personal health and wellness. This involves developing realistic actions to prevent illness, promote self-care and increase healthy behaviours.

To help individuals prevent or manage their chronic diseases so they can live their best life, Alberta Blue Cross recently launched a suite of new, online resource pages designed to help people find reliable, local health care services and programs. They recognize adopting just one healthy lifestyle habit can extend life expectancy by two years. They also know, it may be difficult to know where to start.

These resources make it easier to understand available health options to take the steps to best meet your needs:

  • Publicly available supports and educational chronic disease management information.
  • Self-assessment tools.
  • Up-to-date local information on available physicians and emergency wait times.
  • A view of the health benefits that support a variety of chronic conditions.
