TWIN BROOKS SENIORS PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP
The Twin Brooks Community League (TBCL) is excited about the opportunity to engage the seniors who reside in our neighbourhood and neighbouring communities. Through grant funding from the City of Edmonton Age-Friendly-Edmonton program, a group of seniors from TBCL are planning a creative, innovative project based on a central program that would focus on the “Breaking of Bread”. It aims to highlight that the preparation and eating of food is one of the most pleasant forms of social interaction. The goal is to engage seniors in a fun and innovative way with focus on our communities Multiculturalism and that in the making of food and sharing of recipes and cultural food preparation styles language barriers can be overcome.
In addition, we would like to engage seniors with other possible events such as tai-chi, yoga, mindful meditation, gentle aerobic exercises also building on the social aspects of participating together.
Presentations/Talks on health & wellness could be planned as well as other instructional events perhaps based on the internet and social media use.
Inquiries & offers to join are welcome from residents living in Twin Brooks & surrounding communities.
