Social support can help you to maintain an active social life by having a visit in the home or by arranging visits and outings in the community. It’s more than just shopping! It can be:
- A walk along the beach
- Coffee with a friend
- Visit to the markets
- Visit to the local cinema (always nice to have someone to watch a movie with)
- Assist you to access support groups and recreational activities, i.e. Tai Chi, Heart-moves, Lungs In Action and Light Pace Aqua
- Specialised shopping i.e. clothes, presents, house etc
It can be any activity that supports you to find a place where you feel supported.
Social support can help to prevent loneliness and isolation. If you are feeling lonely, may be a little isolated and not sure how to get involved in social activities then call the office to find out more on (07) 5527 8011.
