This year our theme is, Dance! Dance Dance! With dance there are many good things that happen: improved physical health; increased emotional well-being, and even; making a new friend or two in the process. Day 3 of the 2019 All Seniors Care Seniors Games action was exciting across the country today, as Billiards and Bocce tournaments were contested. With competitors engaging in friendly competition while competing for medals and bragging rights at 26 retirement communities across Canada.

The day was full of tension, excitement, cheers and laughter. At the Laurel Heights Retirement Residence Billiards competition Gold Medalist Harvey suggested with a twinkle: “Who will take the second shot in this snooker game? Find out after the break.” Then at The Courtyards on Eagleson in Kanata Ontario, after the first round of the bocce playoffs and sensing some stress in the room resident Jean M. showing displeasure with her score, quipped “oh heck, well, I’ll be back next year” Jean ended up winning the Silver medal today!

National medals will be awarded at a special presentation during Closing Ceremonies on Friday, Feb. 8th, 2019. Media are welcome to attend all events.

Congratulations to all medalists, competitors and spectators alike. Our week so far has been amazing. And a special thank you to our Mission Staff, Billiards and Bocce volunteer assistants, and our Health and Wellness staff at each residence, whose hard work has made the Games possible. The Seniors Games are part of the All Seniors Care commitment to providing seniors with innovative ways to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.
