Members of the Iona
Presbyterian congregation, as well as the
members of the St. Cyprian's Anglican Church
are fortunate to have a Parish Nursing
ministry right at their doorstep. Staffed by a
registered nurse, everyone should be asured
that tender loving care is just a phone call
away. Whatever your need or complaint, they
are dedicated to be of service. Often, all
that is needed is a compassionate ear or a
contact number to connect with a service or
source of help.

SWIFT Exercise Class
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 11am - noon.
After a year of searching for
leadership for a Seniors' Exercise Class, the
Parish Nursing Ministry is thrilled to
announce that the class started on Wed. Jan.
11, 2012! The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic
College has willingly undertaken leadership of
the group and developed an excellent program
suitable for participants with varied levels
of mobility and other restrictions.
Participants can do exercises either seated or
standing to the level of their tolerance. The
weekly class is open to members of the four
congregations (Iona Presbyterian, St.
Christopher's Anglican, St. Cyprian's
Anglican, and Trinity Mandarin) who worship in
the building and also to the community. We
currently have close to 30 members in the
class. Not only has this provided a valuable
health promotion activity for the churches and
community, but it also provides Clinic Interns
(pre-graduate students) at CMCC with valuable
experience working with the participants.
Classes are planned and run by the interns and
supervised by registered Chiropractors who are
teaching faculty at the College. The program
is definitely a win-win situation for all
involved. Margaret Black, Parish Nurse, would
like to express the participants' gratitude to
Dr. Jarrod Goldin, DC, and his students, and
to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College
for helping to make this dream a reality.
