For the first time, there are more Canadians over the age of 65 than under the age of 15.
Because Canadians are living longer, and our quality of life depends on staying physically active, developing and maintaining physical literacy can be the key to resilience – reducing the effects of falls, injuries, and illness.
This half day workshop will introduce participants to a new training program designed to integrate physical literacy development into activity for older adults. The activities presented can be easily implemented by a recreation leader or health care worker. Workshop participants will be introduced to the concepts of physical literacy and encouraged to try activities that create durability.
If you are a recreation leader, health care worker, exercise specialist or volunteer who care about the importance of quality programming for older adults please register for one of the free workshops offered below at Niagara Region Community Education Room, 1815 Sir Isaac Brock Way, Thorold.
