The North East LHIN is trying to help older adults stay active and safe.
A new program titled Stay on your Feet is providing seniors across Northeastern Ontario with a chance to participate in free exercise classes.
A NE LHIN spokesperson said in a statement that thanks to cooperation from the region’s five public health units they will be offering the program in the Cochrane District across 17locations for a total of 44 classes.
One senior who has experienced the classes herself Carole Orris says they help give her a strength that she didn’t have before, as well as the tools to stay on her feet.
The program will be offered at four separate locations within Cochrane, as well as Moonbeam, Smooth Rock Falls, Mattice and Iroquois Falls and will be offered in English, French or Bilingual sessions.
The program will be run multiple times from Monday through Friday with the schedule varying depending on your location which you can find here.
