Active Lifestyles Club

Active Lifestyles

Interested clients can take part in a weekly exercise class.

This service is located at the North Woodside Community Center, 230 Pleasant Street, Dartmouth. Presently, there are nine clients and four staff who participate in the program. Our philosophy is to provide positive and meaningful experiences through leisure and recreational activities while maintaining choice and individuality.

The Active Lifestyles Club’s atmosphere and services are designed to support individuals who benefit from the experience of a non-traditional day program, either because of choice, ability to cope, age, lack of service and/or health reasons. The flexibility of this service provides many opportunities for client-centered activities and quality experiences. Weekly schedules provide varied choices for leisure and recreational community inclusion programs, such as swimming and skating at Cole Harbour Place, or having a pedicure, manicure or hair style at the Concepts School of Cosmetology. In-house programs are also offered, such as exercise classes with a physiotherapist and music classes with a music therapist.
