Welcome to Canada’s 8th Annual All Seniors Care Seniors Games

Final preparations are under way for the 8th ASC Seniors Games. This year’s event will be held at 28 All Seniors Care Living Centres Retirement Residences from February 6th – 10th, 2017. All Seniors Care Living Centres will again provide thousands of older adults an environment of friendly competition to stay healthy, active and maybe bring home the “Gold”! Building on the success of the previous seven Seniors Games in Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg, Stratford and Ottawa, we are proud to announce the additional Games venues in Calgary, Winnipeg and Ottawa.

“The ASC Seniors Games have become an annual, weeklong showcase of the active and vibrant lifestyle our residents enjoy,” explains Joshua Kuhl, Senior Executive VP of Operations for All Seniors Care. “We are proud to be able to once again host this great event which allows older adults to be active in a friendly and caring social setting.”

Inspired by Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations, our theme this year is “Celebrating Our Heroes.” All Seniors Care Event Planner and Games organizer Ronna Goldberg, felt that “All our residents have Heroes and in their own way are Heroes – they contributed greatly to building and protecting our country and we wanted to celebrate them.”

The ASC Seniors Games are the culmination of a yearlong effort of planning and hard work by a large team of employees and residents. All events are held indoors with the fun getting underway at around 10:30am each day and featuring a competition, awards ceremony, food and special guests.

Day 1: Walking the Hallways

How far will you go? Fast or slow doesn’t matter.

Non-Competitive Walking – Walking is good medicine! It builds “staying power” and improves the health of the heart and circulatory system, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the risk of stroke. Even starting with a few minutes of walking per day can get you on the road to improved health. And if you walk on a regular basis, it can significantly improve your quality of life. What better venue for a nice walk in the middle of winter than our hallways. For fun and fitness on the opening day of our Seniors Games we’ve got a full mile marked out for anyone wanting to go the distance (special recognition for the distances completed). With our liveley music playing to keep you motivated you may wish to dance your way through the halls! All participants receive a complimentary t-shirt to wear during the week.

Bowling will take place in all of the majestic theaters.

Bowling – Whether you are an expert or wanting to try something new, either way join us for an exciting and challenging bowling experience. Wii bowling is a remarkable video game that provides fun, laughter and exercise! It lets you play a game of bowling in front of a large format television screen – move about, test your coordination, and compete against other bowlers.

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day. These medalists will be entered in the national finals with the top three in the nation receiving National Gold, Silver or Bronze medals at our awards Closing Ceremony.
