Have you ever heard of “Social Prescribing”?

At Shannex, we understand that wellness plays a significant role in helping our residents live their best lives. Each one of our communities offers recreational activities that connects residents’ interests and ambitions with activities.

“Social Prescribing” is when a health professional, who, when appropriate, “prescribes” that their patient participates in activities designed to improve wellbeing.

A great thing about social prescribing is that you don’t have to go to your doctor, you can literally prescribe yourself. It encourages you to really think about what you like to do and take part in many of the activities put on by our Wellness Team.

If you’re interested in sharing your wellness preferences, connect with a Recreation and Wellness team member at your community.
