Seniors Social Prescribing Program Chilliwack 2022

Created at the request of the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice.

Program Description:
The Social Prescribing program supports seniors to access non-clinical, community based services to prevent or delay frailty by fostering resilience and social support using a comprehensive, strength-based approach. Participants of social prescribing programs out of the Canada have reported improvements to health and wellbeing, health-related behaviour, emotional state, social contacts and day-to-day functioning. When a Healthcare provider identifies a patient who could benefit from the program they can send a 'prescription' to the Seniors' Community Connector who will support the patient to access suitable local sources of support.
