Wellness 101 Series starts Apr 12 2012- Free to CARP members


The Ottawa Chapter of CARP presents 60 plus and Going Strong in collaboration with Canada’s largest home health care provider, Bayshore Home Health.

Both our organizations understand the importance of wanting to live safely and comfortably in your own home, for as long as possible.

That’s why we’re offering this six-week health care series designed to give you the knowledge and tools needed to promote long-term health, wellness and safety in your home.

Each week, you’ll learn from health care experts about a different aspect of healthy aging in a relaxed, social setting. You’ll gain valuable information on the importance of each area of health, potential risks and symptoms to watch for, as well as strategies to best promote and manage your health. You’ll take away tips such as how to stay active, eat well, minimize the effects of common ailments, and prevent injury and falls. Plus, at the end of each session, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with specialists from your community and share solutions with seniors like yourself.

This dynamic health series is being offered to existing and new CARP members at no cost, so why not start prolonging your independence today?
