Living Well Together Program

Learn how to best help your family live a healthy lifestyle!

The Living Well Together program is a 10-week peer led health promotion program intended to help families caring for a child with a disability prepare for transition and set and reach quality of life goals by developing a healthy lifestyle. The program is free to families enrolled in family support services.

About the Living Well Together program:

  • Families will be provided with workbooks covering the Living Well curriculum
  • Parents will be paired with a trained peer mentor who will meet with you weekly to discuss the curriculum
  • Every other weekend we will have short workshops with separate activities for parents and children based on the curriculum.
  • We will cover topics such as goal setting, building support, eating well, physical activity, staying on course, and more!


Living Well Together is an adaptation of Living Well with a Disability program, an independent living curriculum for adults with physical disability from the University of Montana Rural Institute. Living Well with a Disability is an evidence-based, innovative, consumer-directed, goal-focused health promotion program that helps individuals develop foundations for lifestyle change.

Living Well Together was designed to meet the needs of rural families with a child with a disability. This curriculum incorporates the family unit to focus on life skills necessary for adolescents with disabilities to transition to adulthood.

Thank you University of Montana Rural Institute for your support!
