Whether we have lost a partner, are caring for a family member or are having health issues, finding others going through the same thing can help. At Virtual Coffee House 55+ we provide another option for the growing approach of "social prescriptions". Through our sign up process, we ask a few basic questions to put our members with others who share similar life challenges as well as interests. Our goal is for all of us to have fun as well as feel supported. We thought you might find the following information on social prescribing of interest.
"Social prescribing is when health professionals refer patients to support in the community, in order to improve their health and wellbeing. The concept has gained support in the NHS organisations of the United Kingdom as well as in Ireland and the Netherlands."
