Nicole is a registered nurse working at a rural Family Health Team. She is passionate about helping seniors in the community, and found that social prescribing helped with reducing the impacts of social isolation and improving the quality of life for her clients. She also noted that social prescribing created a sense of community and enhanced her clients’ social skills as they met others who shared similar life experiences.
Why is a 'social prescription' meaningful for your clients?
Social prescribing makes a big difference for patients during the pandemic who live alone, [are] unable to participate in social activities, and home-bound patients, especially with their isolation, and loneliness, giving them something to look forward to! Clients who participate see the most benefit, but even clients who decline a social prescription appreciate the conversation and seem more open to such discussions in the future.
