Our Programs

Our goal is to provide our clients with choices, something for everyone! For the benefit of our new people and also for anyone who is curious as to what actually goes on in our various groups — Here is a brief rundown.

We now start our day with a delightful chat over refreshments and a snack with the Chown staff, volunteers, and students!



DSC00133Our new SteadyFeet program runs from 10:45 to 11:25 A.M.  These exercises are aimed at maintaining and/or improving Balance and Mobility abilities. The development of this program is an ongoing collaboration between community organization, participants, and a wealth of health professionals within Vancouver Coastal Health.

The atmosphere is relaxed and good-humoured. Throughout the week we try to squeeze in more music, e.g. karaoke, musical games.
