Our Services

 

  What services do we offer ?  
   
  All Parish Nursing services are always free of charge and completely confidential.  
     
 
  • Education -
    health education for individuals, families and community
 
 
  • Seniors' Exercise Class -


    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.
