For the fourth straight year, All Seniors Care is set to launch the annual ASC Seniors Games, Feb. 4-8, 2013 at its 19 Retirement Residences across the country.
From East to West, Edmonton to Ottawa/Gatineau (and Saskatoon, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg and Stratford in between), thousands of seniors across the country will be walking and “Wii-ing”, playing bocce, shuffleboard, billiards and board games in an effort to keep active, stay healthy, and have fun during the winter months!
“The Games have become an annual showcase of our commitment to providing seniors with innovative ways to maintain an active and vibrant lifestyle,” explains Joshua Kuhl, Senior Executive VP of Operations for All Seniors Care. “We are proud to be able to provide the venue for seniors to stay active in a friendly and caring social setting.”
All events will be held indoors, with the fun getting underway at around 10:30am each day and will feature a competition, awards ceremony, food and special guests.
Day 1: Walking The Hallways
Day 2: Wii Bowling
Day 3: Billiards and Bocce
Day 4: Wii Golf & Shuffleboard
Day 5: Card & Board Games
At Opening Ceremonies across the country this year we will be recognizing special personal achievement of many of our current residents including Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award recipients Dr. Reginald Bing-Wo in Regina and Mr. Stan Newman in Winnipeg. Seniors, guests and dignitaries will participate in a singing of “God Save the Queen” followed by a special toast, given by the Chef de Mission.
