Social PrescriptionsHere at Eaglesvale Care, we believe there are a number of other ways to treat a range of mental and physical illnesses as well as other issues of the same sort. “Social prescriptions” is a term used to describe non-medical support which an individual can receive instead of “medical prescriptions.” Our social prescription services are designed to help those who are suffering from depression, bereavement, isolation including those who desire or feel they need to better their lifestyles with regards to their health. Social prescription is one way of solving and treating illnesses without medication therefore, reducing the risk of future problems and side effects. If a client approached us with a health issue which the doctors feel is a result of lack of exercise or unhealthy living, we will then refer the client to an exercise class or weight loss activity/program. This will then help reduce or treat their health issue without the use of medication. Moreover, we can arrange day trips and hobbies/ activities for those who feel lonely and isolated. This will then prevent them from falling into depression. If a client is not comfortable or feel that group activities are not for them, we can provide them with a caregiver. The caregiver will be there to offer the client with support in the areas they have a need. The caregiver can assist the client with preparing their meals, attending appointments, attending activities, housekeeping, provide company for day trips as well as personal care. The caregiver can be with the client from a minimum of 30 minutes to 24 hours a day, depending on the client's needs.
