Service Overview

Community Support Connections offers FREE fall prevention education and gentle exercise sessions. 

Gentle Exercise sessions are taught by trained staff and volunteers following SMART™ (Seniors Maintaining Active Roles Together)
– a national, evidence based gentle exercise and fall prevention program developed by VON Canada in consultation with physiotherapists, kinesiologists and older adults themselves. The goal of our programs is to assist older adults in maintaining or improving their functional fitness and independence. Functional fitness is about strength, endurance, balance and flexibility.

Drop-in, no registration required. Classes are 45-60 minutes each. Meet people, stay active!
Everyone is welcome.
