Circle of Care provides free group exercise and falls prevention classes to seniors living in the community. Classes are led by trained fitness professionals. You must be 65+ to participate. If you do not meet this requirement, please contact Mila Robinson (mrobinson@circleofcare.com)

Our exercise and falls prevention classes are designed to help participants increase mobility, relieve pain and reduce the risk of falls by building strength and improving balance. They are a mix of standing and sitting exercises. Classes are funded by the Central Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS), and are offered to eligible participants free of charge.

All exercises can be modified accordingly.
