The City of Brantford and the YMCA Employment and Settlement Services have partnered to meet a growing need in the community by hosting a series of seniors workshops aimed at newcomers to the City.
The first workshop, Living a Healthy Lifestyle, took place on Wednesday, March 20, at Laurier Brantford YMCA.
Over 30 newcomer seniors learned about a healthy diet with a Public Health Dietitian from the Brant County Health Unit and participated in healthy exercise with a YMCA Fitness Instructor.
The next workshop, focusing on Seniors’ Safety will be on Saturday, April 13, 2019, followed by a Picnic in the Park on Saturday, May 25, 2019.
The topics of the workshops series are based on feedback from newcomer seniors and their families, which was collected at the New Year’s celebration launch event in January.
