Active Living

Leading a healthy and active lifestyle is extremely important to the personal well-being of our members. The Active Living Program takes place in three ways; recreation, functional fitness, and nutrition.  The members engage in various forms of recreation such as; basketball, soccer and parachute games on a weekly basis at a local gymnasium.  Functional fitness works to promote the five basic movements of the body; push, pull, bend, twist and lift.  In being active comes the understanding of life skills with respect to personal hygiene and laundry duties.  Lastly, our Healthy Snack program assists in promoting healthier choices as well as educating the members on the importance of nutrition based on Canada’s Food Guide.
