Despite the COVID-19 crisis, United Way's SP Programs are not deterred by this recent pandemic. In fact, this role is more important than ever. The healthcare system is in a current state of overwhelm and so this is when social prescribing is crucial to attain healthcare equilibrium.
To mitigate social isolation and mental un-wellness during what can be a difficult time for seniors, I have created a list of resources to e-mail, leave outside our office for pick up, or drop off for Social Prescribing participants at their front door (without compromising their health, or yours; wear gloves). This document can also be mailed off to participants as well.
