Walking Groups for Seniors
Walk with us to stay active and fit, chat with others, and explore new routes and trails. Open to all seniors, these free walking groups are also a dementia friendly environment, perfect for a person living with dementia and a family member to attend together. Walking is an excellent way to promote cardiovascular and brain health, build strength to reduce the risk of falls, and lift mood!

Walking Poles Borrowing Program
We are launching our very own Walking Poles Borrowing Program! We have purchased 10 sets of walking poles to loan to seniors in PEI.
The Urban Poling ACTIVATOR® poles focus on building strength and stability, and the Urban Poling Series 300 poles are built for fitness and performance. Both types are height adjustable and have ergonomic CoreGrip handles for improved wrist support.
The walking poles are now available to borrow in 4-week increments, with the possibility of extension depending on demand. This program will be run on a first come first serve basis, with an ongoing waitlist and a limit of one set of poles per person. Instructions will be provided, novices are welcome.
Contact us to borrow your first set!
Social Activities for Seniors
These events designed for seniors are intended to foster social connection, engagement in activities, and education, virtually and in person. They focus on social connection activities through arts and crafts, music concerts and singalongs, personal sharing and relating games, and health and wellness education like reducing stress/living well, caregiving tips, accessing resources in the community and maintaining brain health.
See our events calendar for upcoming activities!
