Links2WellbeingGWSA- Community Support Services
Guided by the Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario and the Alliance for Healthier Communities, the Guelph Wellington Seniors Association has joined a 3-year Social Prescribing project called Links2Wellbeing.
The aim of this program is to improve the social health and wellbeing of older adults across Ontario through connecting them to social resources within their communities.
In partnership with the Guelph Community Health Centre, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and allied health across the City of Guelph, GWSA hopes to facilitate social connection to our many social health and wellness groups through a “prescription” based model.
Interested participants will be connected with Volunteer Link Ambassadors, who will provide 1:1 support in connecting and integrating into social programming.
If you are interested in more information about this program, please contact Community Support Services via phone at (519) 837-5696. Alternatively, you can contact Audrey Bishop at [email protected]
GWSA-Community Support Services programming depends on the dedication from our team of caring volunteers.
