In collaboration with the Gatineau Friendship Club, Connexions is hosting a Seniors Wellness Event on Thursday, October 19 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the St. Aloysius Church in Gatineau.
This activity aims to provide English-speaking seniors with information on available services in the region, as well as knowledge on a variety of health and wellness themes.
Make sure to join us for:
• A workshop on Nutrition and the importance of protein with guest facilitator Maureen Ricard, retired nurse;
• A chance to test your knowledge and win prizes; and
• An opportunity to meet new acquaintances during this stimulating afternoon!
You’ll also have a chance to visit many community organization kiosks who will have on-hand a variety of health and wellness resources. These organizations will include Appui Outaouais, the Société Alzheimer de l’Outaouais Québécois, the Centre d’assistance et d’accompagnement aux plaintes (CAAP) Outaouais, the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outouais (CISSSO), the Centre de justice de proximité, the CISSSO Gatineau User’s Committee and the Gatineau Friendship Club.
