The LEAPS initiative at Lumacare is celebrating one year!
On February 25th Lumacare will gather with all participants to celebrate our accomplishment within the past year .
Last year Lumacare received a grant from New Horizons to provide leisure education to seniors in our community. This grant supports senior leaders (ie seniors who want to lead a group) in training for, preparing and implementing sustainable recreation and leisure activities.
In addition to connecting seniors to community resources and providing education on the importance of leisure in leading a healthy lifestyle to more than sixty-five seniors, the LEAPS program has yielded a weekly games night, a bi-weekly baking club, a weekly bingo group and a monthly book club and has provided training to twelve individuals on Functional Fitness implementation for seniors.
