As we age, it becomes even more important to stay active. Staying mentally and physically well for independence and quality of life is so important. But many older Canadians face the same question: How does one engage in healthy behaviours that contribute to an active lifestyle? Where do you start?

At Active Aging in Manitoba, we inspire healthy lifestyles by offering programs, services and resources to support, motivate, and educate you along the way.

We help older adults stay connected to their communities and maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to age in place. We are using a hybrid model with in-person and online options available, reaching as many older adults as possible, so that everyone can remain connected and active.

Stay Active and Connected for Your Physical and Mental Well-Being

Your lifestyle can impact how you feel overall as well as on a day-to-day basis. By staying active and connected with others, you can reap many benefits. For example, being active and socially connected can help to alleviate symptoms of depression, social isolation, and anxiety, which can help with your overall health.

We’ve put together these resources to educate older adults about how they can maintain their health as they age. With education about preventing falls, webinars, the importance of getting the flu shot, and caregiver resources, you can feel empowered to make healthier and safer lifestyle choices.
