Social networks and Living Well – A Case Study Review

social networks and living well coverThis paper examines the current methods of community engagement within Cornwall through a series of case studies and makes recommendations on how to improve these services. This paper also assesses community involvement in other areas in the UK in order to take lessons from other experiences and apply them to Cornwall.

 

Recommendations

  1. Engagement in community groups is not suitable for all elderly people.
  2. Services need to have a thorough knowledge of both the service user and the community groups in order to make accurate referrals.
  3. The tailoring of services is essential in order to alleviate isolation and loneliness for each individual.
