Meals for Isolated Seniors

Dec-Jan

Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre's priority is keeping seniors safe and healthy. The meal delivery program to isolated seniors has the ability to deliver 600 healthy, balanced prepared meals each week. Volunteers deliver meals twice each week to isolated seniors. This program is a FREE program so not to add the stress of food access and financial burden to seniors who are isolated and on a fixed income. Those seniors are challenged to go shopping or do any banking as most are not well versed in technology or do not own any form of technology, which limits access. Isolated seniors are greeted through a window with a friendly wave and receive morning phone calls to increase social connections.

Waking Up With Mindfulness



Join Adrienne Shum for daily mindfulness practice in the heart of winter. Practising mindfulness meditation has been shown to reduce stress, improve mental health, and strengthen resilience. This course is designed to introduce the meditation-curious to simple, sustainable practices, while also offering support to those with previous experience. Each day, tune in for a 20-minute video (on YouTube) of Adrienne unpacking the how’s and why's of mindfulness, and engage in the guided practice. Mindfulness is accessible to many: you can sit or lie down, meaning it can meet your physical needs. This offering will emphasize high audio quality to serve those with vision impairment. Closed captioning can also be enabled for the deaf or hard of hearing. Adrienne Shum has been a full-time yoga teacher in Winnipeg for over a decade, and now, with the off-camera technical expertise of David Quiring, is extending her offerings into the online world.

There are many ways we can enjoy time in nature this winter. Let's inspire each other and embrace Manitoba’s winter wonderland. Winter is part of our identity, whether we like it or not. People who used to hibernate have started to head outside as a way to find safe and fun ways to be active and connect at a safe social distance during a pandemic. Join CPAWS Manitoba on February 12 at noon on Zoom for a panel discussion to help you get inspired to embrace winter and get your frost on! The panelists from Hike Manitoba, Green Action Centre, and Wilderness Supply Company will talk about how to overcome the challenges of getting active in winter, how to safely spend time outdoors during a pandemic, give suggestions for how to get started and make recommendations about how to take your winter activities to the next level. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/connecting-for-conservation-warming-up-to-winter-tickets-137965435331
