2021 Manitoba 55+ Games are going Virtual!

The Manitoba 55+ Virtual Games: June 14 – July 16, 2021! Presented by: PlayNow.com – Virtually, until we meet again!

A month-long opportunity to participate!

The Manitoba 55+ Games have been in existence since 1983, encouraging older adults to participate, try new activities and have fun. Amid a pandemic, hosting a large-scale in-person event was not possible. AAIM has pivoted and re-focused the Manitoba 55+ Games virtually for 2021. Safety is our top priority; we are bringing the games to you, close to home. Events have been selected based on what we are able to do safely within our communities and individual ‘bubbles’ abiding by the current public health orders.

Participate at your own pace & safely, following public health guidelines. Join many other Manitobans, to connect virtually in the 2021 MB 55+ Games – it’s simple, free and FUN!

*Visit the Games page for more information on how to participate & download the MB 55+ Virtual Games Information Package.

UPDATES

DURING COVID

Active Aging in Manitoba (AAIM) is aware that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is present in Manitoba and we want to ensure that our staff, volunteers and older adults we support are at minimal risk.

As the situation continues to evolve, AAIM will be monitoring the situation. AAIM will use the information available from Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living; the Public Health Agency of Canada and the World Health Organization to guide our decisions regarding our programming. There is an increased risk for individuals: aged 65 and over, with compromised immune systems and/or with underlying medical conditions.

If you are concerned about symptoms that you or a loved one may be experiencing, please contact Health Links at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257 to speak to a Health Links registered nurse. Keep up to date with evolving public health recommendations from MB Health: www.gov.mb.ca/health/coronavirus/

DON’T PUT YOUR HEALTH ON HOLD

No matter what’s going on in the world, your regular health concerns don’t stop. Neither does your doctor. Right now, doctors across Manitoba are still available to help with your essential health concerns as we adapt to COVID-19. That help extends to everything from prescriptions and ongoing chronic conditions, to injuries and other illnesses.

Doctors are here to help you. They may provide a phone or video appointment. If an in-person visit is needed, doctor’s offices are taking public health precautions to screen patients, disinfect more frequently and apply social distancing advice in common spaces like waiting rooms. Most importantly, your doctor can help you decide if you should seek care now, or wait. Don’t self-diagnose, or simply assume they’re not available. Just call your doctor first to get advice. They’re ready to help.
