GEMS Lunch & Learn!

We are collaborating with the Macdonald Services to Seniors GEMS program to bring you a Lunch & Learn on falls prevention!

Did you know that falls are the leading cause of injury among older Canadians? 20-30% of seniors experience 1 or more falls each year! This workshop aims at helping participants learn about why falls happen, how to prevent falls, exercise rules, home exercises, home safety tips, and more!

Come for lunch and stay for the presentation. GEMS is a Macdonald Services to Seniors lunch program held each week at Starbuck Hall on Wednesdays and at Sanford Legion on Thursdays beginning at Noon. A delicious lunch is only $8. This provides great food in a fun and friendly atmosphere, the opportunity to visit with old friends and make new ones. Please call Leanne at 204.735.3052 the Monday prior to reserve your space and order lunch.


* Presentations are free to attend but please let us know you are coming!
