Frequently Asked Questions

Not currently on the programme

Liva Healthcare is on a mission to offer digital health programmes to everyone who wants to make changes to their health and wellbeing.

We can help you with lifestyle changes to help you to live a full and healthy life. For example, we can support you to manage your weight, manage a long-term health condition such as type 2 diabetes, or simply help you with finding your healthy daily routine, all through changing small daily habits and more.

These digital health programmes are delivered through our Liva app where you will have access to your own personal Health Coach. When you start the programme, you choose a date and a time for a live video session with a Health Coach of your own choice.

Here you will get to meet each other, discuss your health goals, and together you will decide on a plan for how the programme should be tailored to your needs.

After this live video session, you will be encouraged to register your health goals in the app, and your Health Coach will monitor how you are progressing, send you messages and videos, as well as informative resources and recipes, and much more.

A Liva programme follows this structure:

  • You pick a time and a date for a 45-minute live video session with a Health Coach of your own choice
  • At the live video session, you and your Health Coach will create a plan for your programme tailored to your needs
  • You will be encouraged to register your health goals in the app
  • Your Health Coach will check-in with you through messages and videos in the app
  • Your Health Coach will send you informative resources, recipes, provide tailored advice and much more according to your needs
  • You can ask all the questions you have about your health journey to your coach, and he/she will do their very best to help you
  • In some of our offered programmes, you can participate in Groups with other Liva members where you can get support from others following a similar journey
