In alignment with Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen, the City of London has reopened a number of City facilities for in-person services and programs.
June is Seniors' Month and to celebrate the Age Friendly London Network is offering a variety of free Age Friendly London virtual sessions on well-being and resiliency for older adults. Sessions are offered every Wednesday at 10 a.m. throughout the month of June.
“Seniors’ Month is a time to recognize the contributions older adults have made and continue to make every day in our community,” says Mayor Ed Holder. “It’s a chance to show appreciation for the seniors who have made an impact in your life. London’s seniors have built our city and they deserve nothing but the best.”
Topics include self-care during trying times, keeping your mind and body healthy, creativity for wellness and building social connections. These sessions are offered over Zoom and provide seniors an opportunity to engage with guest speakers, music and much more.
Speakers include resiliency expert and five-time author Allison Graham, social worker Corey Janke, music therapists Jill Kennedy and Emily McCarthy and keynote speaker Dobijoki Emanuela Bringi.
Free registration is available through Play Your Way online or by calling 519-661-5575. For more information about these sessions, please contact AgeFriendlyLondon@London.ca or 519-661-2489, extension 7208.
