KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ONTARIO (June 20, 2023): Community Healthcaring Kitchener-Waterloo will host their first “Older Adult Active Living Fair” at 44 Francis St. S., Kitchener from 10-3:30 p.m., June 21, 2023 to help older adults learn more about improving their quality of life.

 

“Adults are living longer and enjoying active lifestyles,” said Tara-Groves Taylor, CEO of Community Healthcaring Kitchener-Waterloo. “One way that we care for our older adults is by giving them the information they need to be active, prevent illness and stay safe. Today with our community partners, we will share valuable insight and tips on relevant topics to promote health and wellness and build community.”

 

The event will include sessions on numerous topics that help older adults to live a healthy, active life, including heart health, managing diabetes, brain health, how to avoid scams, emergency preparedness and navigating grief with grace and purpose.  The following community partners are providing information at the fair:
