**Reminder** Chair Yoga continues
Monday, Oct. 15 @1:30 pm
Chair yoga is ideal for seniors, pregnant women and anyone lacking the balance or physical strength to tolerate a traditional yoga class. Music will be used and the tone of the class is fun and somewhat social, making it great for people in need of connection and not ideal for people who are sensitive to sound.
Chair yoga is an adaptation of regular yoga in which exercises are done while sitting or holding onto a chair. By providing extra stability, the chair reduces anxiety and makes yoga a safe exercise for most older adults.
Uplifting music is incorporated into the class to create a fun and relaxing atmosphere for people to move in and socializing is encouraged. While balancing an individual’s physical, mental and emotional health, chair yoga increases strength, flexibility and concentration along with many other health benefits.
This class will be limited to 15 participants. As this is not a program that requires registration, to be sure of a spot/chair, early arrival is the best approach.
October 15 – December 10, 2018

It’s Not Right!
Neighbours, Friends & Families for Older Adults
Abuse of older adults is a serious problem in Canada!
Together we can prevent abuse of older adults
Do you know an older adult you think may be experiencing abuse or neglect?
It is often neighbours, friends and family members who first see the warning signs but don’t know what to do about it.
Please join us for this free & engaging workshop! We will cover:
*warning signs and risk factors
*scenarios – video presentations of situations of abuse and neglect
*how to respond safely and supportively
*how to have a conversation about suspected abuse
* resources and whom to call
Date: October 24th

Have you seen our little children’s garden bench?
Lovingly made by one of our generous volunteers who donated his time and materials to make a bench for our children’s playground and garden.
It has been missing from our Family Centre playground since the end of August 2018 (along with some Little Tykes plastic play equipment).
Please contact us at 250-388-7844 Ext 313 or email@example.com if you have seen it. We would love to have it returned! Thank you.
JBCP accepts a generous gift from Coast Capital James Bay
