This short video explains in detail about the Wellbeing Projects, the aim of the projects and how the we are re-connecting individuals.
For more information call:
Studies show that being lonely or isolated can impact upon mental and physical health factors and that lonely people find everyday activities more stressful than those who are not socially isolated. Rates of mortality for older people who are lonely are reported as 50% higher; emergency hospital admissions are a third higher and GP consultation rates three times higher compared with their non-lonely peers.
We are delighted to be working closely with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the NHS across Surrey on a number of Wellbeing Projects which aim to re-connect individuals, identified by their GP, into their community, so helping them get the most out of life. See below for more information about each of the projects.
We are always looking for help with our Wellbeing project and the other services we provide. If you have the time, however little, there are so many ways in which you can help make a positive difference to older people in the community by volunteering for us.
