Health and Wellbeing in Liskeard

Liskeard Memory Café

The Memory Café meets at the Wesley Methodist Church Hall on the first Friday of every month, apart from January, from 2:15 to 4:15 p.m. We welcome all people with memory related issues, whether living on their own or accompanied by their Carer.

The first hour of every session is either entertainment from a guest artist, a workshop session such as flower arranging or dance and movement, but may also be Art and Craft sessions, board and indoor games, etc.

The second hour is more informal with tea and cakes provided, time to chat, a raffle and the chance to win a small prize via a quiz. We also provide much useful information, including signposting useful contacts that can help members in many ways.

Social Prescribing

What is Social Prescribing?

Social Prescribing is a way to help you find out about support within the community that can improve your health and wellbeing. You might be looking to:

• Get more active
• Access finance support
• Live more independently
• Build social connections
• Have a healthier lifestyle
• Improve your mental wellbeing

Oak Tree Surgery, Pensilva Health Centre and Rosedean House Surgery in Liskeard have dedicated Social Prescribers that can help you with this and offer confidential, 1:1 support.

You are at the heart of the Service and the Social Prescriber will support you over a period of time, to help you reach your goals and access the support that is most important to you.

To book an appointment with your local Social Prescriber, contact your GP surgery.
