Supporting the health and well-being of older adults in Niagara

Due to gym closures during the pandemic, many older adults in the Niagara region experienced a decrease in their overall physical activity and social interactions. To support their health and well-being, Brock University and TD Bank Group are partnering on the SeniorFit program. 

The SeniorFit program, offered by the Brock-Niagara Centre for Health and Well-Being, connects residents 55 years and older with access to workout equipment, one-on-one training and in-person and online fitness classes. Through these resources, the program aims to remove barriers and further promote the health and well-being of older adults in the local community, while fostering an inclusive and safe environment. 

The centre also provides students in the university’s nursing, kinesiology, health sciences, recreation and gerontology programs with work-integrated learning experiences through program leadership opportunities.
