Seine River seniors are staying active

  • Print

Physical activity is such an important component of caring for ourselves, and yet we regularly put it off to make work, family and friends our priority.  

Happily, it is never too late to begin living a more active life. The many energetic seniors living in our community are proof positive of this.

This year, we celebrated the 5th annual All Seniors Care Games in the first week of February.

The event took place at 22 All Seniors Care Living Centres across Canada, bringing residents together in friendly competition while encouraging them to stay healthy and active during the winter months. Activities include hall walking, billiards, bocce, and shuffleboard as well as Wii bowling and golf.  

I am pleased to let you know that one of the participants from Seine River Retirement Residence won the national Wii bowling bronze medal. Kathleen Michener trained daily for this event and her efforts were certainly rewarded. Congratulations to Kathleen and to all participants in this year’s games.

I want to commend the staff at Seine River Residence for their unparalleled commitment to our seniors. These events help not only enhance physical fitness, but help reduce social isolation, which can be a very serious concern for elders in our community. The work of our recreation directors and community liaison workers at River Park Gardens, Vista Park Lodge, Kirchhoff Gardens (just to name a few) ensures that our loved ones get the care and comfort they need, and we owe them a debt of gratitude.

If you would like to know more about this event, you can always contact my office at 204-255-7840 or at Theresa.Oswald@yourmanitoba.ca.

On behalf of all families in the Seine River constituency, I send a belated valentine to you all for your creativity and commitment!
