Providing information about health culture, prevention of socially significant diseases, providing care for disadvantaged people, public engagement of employees – these are our priorities in the work for the benefit of society. The social and health care for the elderly– this is not only medical treatment but care and attention as well. The endless waiting and queues in front of the GP’s cabinet, sometimes only to measure the blood pressure, is hard for a pensioner. To provide the feeling of actual care and support, we realize social projects in several pension clubs in Sofia, where we provide measuring of various health parameters such as blood pressure, carbon monoxide in the lungs, the volume of inhaled air, as well as a recommendation for a visit to the general practitioner, if necessary. The psychological support is also present in our prevention program, a specialist-psychologist with many years of practice is taking care of that. The project started in the pension club in Lulin and was supported by the Bulgarian Association of Pensioners (BAP), since it gave the pensioners the opportunity to share and solve actual problems that worsen their health and inner comfort. Our online presence with advice on physical and mental health #здрави/zdravi and a positive look at life #силен ден (strong day) and #силен ден в общуването (strong day in communication) created social commitment and focused the attention on health, as well as gained a lot of friends in social networks. We are going to expand this very soon with a new information campaign for prevention of socially significant diseases and a new mobile application. A new challenge for us is also the joint project with Darik radio #sopharmabike to promote healthy lifestyle in urban environment. Charity and empathy to a friend in need are combined in the expansion of the sustainable project “Help from a friend” which is now in its fifth year with the voluntary participation of Sopharma employees in the form of charity bazaars. Join us in the world of informedness by: #sopharmasociality #Здрави/Zdravi #sopharmabike #Силен ден в общуването #Силен ден and become a part of the care for yourselves and the people you love.
