At Berwick Retirement Communities, we strive to foster a sense of belonging, dignity and respect with residents, families and team members. We are dedicated to creating an energetic life force within our communities so it was a perfect fit for us to certify our Active Living Staff as StrongerU Senior Fitness Instructors and launch the StrongerU Senior Fitness Program in our communities.
Our mission is to create a wonderful environment where residents enjoy exceptional services from friendly staff. It’s no surprise that Founder of Berwick Retirement Communities, Gordon Denford, was the recipient of the 2019 BCSLA Pioneer Award presented by British Columbia Seniors Living Association (BCSLA). Further, Berwick Comox Valley was the recipient of a 2019 ICAA NuStep Beacon Award for “Best in Wellness” Presented by International Council on Active Aging (ICAA).
We were first introduced to StrongerU Senior Fitness at the 2019 BCSLA Conference where StrongerU Senior Fitness was a Finalist at the Aging 2.0 Global Innovation Showcase . We had the opportunity to connect with Emily at the BCSLA Conference in Whistler in September 2019, and after hearing her pitch, we knew this was something we wanted to pursue and roll out at all our Berwick communities. Our goal is to further enhance the lives of our Residents, and empower them to stay active. StrongerU Senior Fitness is a safe, effective and fun choreographed program that bridges the gap between exercise and science knowledge, and gives our employees the instruction they need to ensure our residents are achieving Canada’s physical activity guidelines.
Our Active Living Teams are thrilled to be a part of the StrongerU Senior Fitness Instructor community!News & Press
