PROGRAMMING & SERVICES
The Old School is committed to offering programming that contributes to the health and wellness of community members of all ages. In the past, we have offered information sessions and demos around diet and nutrition, managing chronic illness, and financial literacy. In March 2020 we wrapped our pilot movement therapy program, Enhance Through Dance, which was funded through the federal government’s New Horizons Program.
Two levels of Tai Chi for arthritis (Beginner and Intermediate) are offered every Wednesday morning by a local volunteer instructor. Tai Chi is a low key, low impact exercise that benefits the body and mind.
The Old School houses Eastern Shore Mental Health (ESMH), a network of peer mental health supporters who match community members with resources and services. ESMH also offers a weekly peer support meeting every Sunday afternoon, all are welcome.
Currently the Old School Team is working with Harbourside Lodge in Sheet Harbour and the Braeside Home for Special Care in Middle Musquodoboit to establish Well-Being HUBs on the Eastern Shore and in the Musquodoboit Valley. Well-Being HUBs will offer wrap around supports for community members receiving home care, those in Long Term Care and those who will enter the care system in the future, as well as their care partners. Scroll down for more information on the HUBs project.
