Seniors Social Prescribing (Pitt Meadows & Maple Ridge, British Columbia)

The Seniors Social Prescribing program connects seniors to community programming, services and resources that will help them thrive and remain connected and independent for as long as possible.

Social Prescribing works alongside clinical treatments to address people’s needs in a holistic way. Social prescription can include physical activities, social activities, nutrition/food security programs, caregiver programs, and opportunities to access services in the community.

Nursing Home Without Walls (New Brunswick)

The New Brunswick-based Nursing Home Without Walls program promotes healthy aging at home ensuring older adults (and their caregivers) can age in place with access to appropriate knowledge, support and services. NHWW programs are hosted by nursing homes to leverage their trusted knowledge of the local community, community resources and aging. They also work to empower the local community to respond to the needs of an aging population.
