“Healthy Eating for Seniors”

Healthy eating is a key part of aging well. As you age, you face different changes that make eating seem more challenging. We will show you how to cope with these issues.

“Physiotherapist VS Chiropractor”

Do you know the difference? There are differences & similarities between seeing a physiotherapist or a chiropractor. The speaker series will aid you in making the proper choices.

“Seniors & Physical Activity”

There are health benefits to being active and strengthening your “CORE”. Proper physical activity will aid in your health status and ease the stress in the medical areas.

Note these spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and are limited.


The Powers That May Be…

Seniors Keeping Active – Programs and Volunteers         

Date: Tuesday, November 22
Time: 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Township of Tiny Community Centre (91 Concession 8 East)      

Physical activity is essential to Healthy Aging.  This workshop will show why activity can help prevent or delay many of the health problems that seem to come with age.  It also helps muscles grow stronger so you can keep doing your day-to-day activities without becoming dependent on others.  Keep in mind, that some physical activity is better than none at all.  We also hope to show how volunteerism helps keep Seniors both socially and physically active.

All Workshops are free and are open to residents of North Simcoe. Registration is required and light refreshments will be provided. To read the full details visit www.tiny.ca/seniors
