Allied Health Provider
Terry is an Allied Health Provider at a Community Health Centre, and they noted many positive impacts of social prescribing. In addition to the health benefits for their clients, they observed a reduction in the number and frequency of repeat visits and phone calls by clients, helping to reduce strain on the healthcare system.
Why is a 'social prescription' meaningful for your clients?
The ability to offer social prescriptions has decreased my visits. It has alleviated stressors for my clients. I have seen positive turn-arounds in clients’ overall mood. Social prescribing also helps ease the strain on our health system, while giving clients a sense of community and belonging that COVID-19 restraints eroded.”
