Saskatoon Health Region and SPRA are partners in a Provincial Forever…in motion strategy that will provides and promotes safe physical activity opportunities for older adults living in Saskatchewan. This collaborative strategy focuses primarily on individuals living in seniors’ congregate housing and condominiums or those that attend churches, day programs and community programs to reach and improve health through physical activity for the older adult population.
Saskatoon Health Region has been working on developing, implementing and evaluating the Forever…in motion program since 2002 as a way to make accessible physical activity opportunities available for older adults. In this process, there have been a number of resources and materials developed including Forever…in motion leadership training, training resources and resources for older adults.
To address the demand for provincial access, SPRA coordinates, manages, and has developed a provincial program leading to increased partnerships throughout the province, using the present Forever…in motion model.
