Seniors Active Living
We help empower, give tools, resources & support to help seniors aged 55+ lead more meaningful lives.
Seniors Active Living Centre (programs) promote wellness, social interaction, and education to help seniors remain active, independent, and engaged. These programs are designed to improve quality of life by offering social, cultural, educational, and recreational programs that promote health.
The program model of care delivery supports socially isolated seniors who would benefit from the opportunities that would improve their access by utilizing hybrid, in-person, phone, or web based, and mobile to reach rural or remote communities.
SALC programs tackle social isolation that affects the health and well-being of seniors that can lead to depression and increase vulnerability.
Promoting and supporting volunteer participation is linked to improved quality of life, stronger social networks, increased mental-health and higher physical activity levels.
SALC participants have opportunities for
- Physical activities and exercise social gatherings with other seniors
- Service navigation and support with community referrals and resources education & learning opportunities
- Experience with the arts
- Technology tutorials
- Cooking with friends
- Promoting nutrition
- Bus trips and events access to transportation opportunities
