A new spin on an old idea- that people are healthier when they are connected with social resources and supports in their communities. Social prescribing is a means of referring people to a range of local non clinical services. This connection can address individual needs in a holistic way and support people in taking greater control over their own health. Your health care provider may suggest “social prescribing” as a complement or instead of a prescription or medical treatment. At Country Roads, our social prescribing team can work with you to help you learn more about local services and get connected to something meaningful to you. Ask our team about this!
