ZOOMERS ON THE GO

Becoming a Participant

We are excited that you are interested in joining our program! We look forwards to helping you take steps to improve your mobility and maintain your independence. 

Is this program for me?

Zoomers on the Go is an exercise-based fall prevention program delivered in        12-week intervals. This program is meant for those who may have concerns about falling, difficulty walking or balancing without support.

 

Each class is peer-led by a certified volunteer leader over the age of 50 years. This helps participants feel as though leaders understand what may be happening in their daily lives.

Are you a fairly active individual?

Are you comfortable balancing without support?

Are you already taking part in a supervised exercise program?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above,

this program may not be best suited for you.
