Preventive Social Prescribing
BC Preventive Social Prescribing (PSP) auto-refers seniors who visit family clinics or pharmacies to the perfect program near home that will improve their wellbeing based on their Cohesion, At-homeness, and Playfulness (CAP) profiles. It builds community among isolated seniors and complements the Primary Care Networks (PCN) of BC.
Health providers build community by pointing seniors to the auto-referral platform. Activity provider checks-in with seniors and Health providers can monitor progress. The Learning System supports community development for prevention.
What does it take to disrupt the loneliness-cognition axis? The CAP Model drew on community psychology, environmental gerontology, and occupational therapy, and successfully identified effective mechanisms of action in a controlled trial.
The PSP platform scales with additional Activity providers and may be rolled out area by area. A feasibility study has been completed, and community stakeholders are rallying together at additional sites. Next sites: Oakridge-Fairview & Burnaby
