About the Event
Through training and program support, Elders in Motion (EIM) improves access to physical activity opportunities for NWT Elders and seniors, while also working to increase independence and functional mobility for older adults.
EIM is a partnership program between the NWT Recreation and Parks Association, the Dene Nation, the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging, with support from the NWT Seniors’ Society and the NWT Department of Health and Social Services.
Together we have developed a series of effective and medically sound training programs fit for Northern communities.
What to expect:
In this Elders in Motion - Active Living Exercise Program, participants can anticipate delving into the complex and interconnected topics of ageism, frailty, and learned helplessness. As society continues to age, it becomes imperative to address the challenges faced by Elders. As well, during this training, you will learn to provide a baseline measurement for seniors' fitness levels. We will provide you with 10 simple, yet beneficial, exercises to encourage active living!
The training will also include a Balls and Balance workshop. This training teaches community leaders who are certified in the Active Living Exercise Program to incorporate balls into their program.
**Active Living Exercise Program Facilitator Manual included**
Coffee, tea and snacks will be served, but don't forget to bring your lunch!
Location: Community Lounge on the 2nd floor, Midnight Sun Complex
