My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK - September 28, 2020 

Let’s get started. My Lions Gate BREAK members are part of a special club. I think this is our theme song:





Please email me if you have another idea for a theme song for us.


Let’s get some exercise. Here is a good seated exercise program for people living with dementia, from McCormick Care Group. This will take about 30 minutes. Remember to only do exercises that feel safe and comfortable.








Before you head for lunch here is a video on the benefits of exercise on aging, stress, Alzheimer’s and dementia. (Please note that while this is very informative for care partners, it may be sensitive for some people living with dementia).







Lunch topic of conversation: “What was the sport that you played most when you were a child? 

What was the sport that you played through your adult years?” Please share your favourite sport memories either with me or with your family members. I would love to hear your story. 

If you want to share your experience with me, please email me.


Let’s stick with sport. Here are a couple of videos of amazing waterskiing competitions. The first is the Waterski World Championship Men’s Slalom Final.







The second is the Spectacular Pro Men’s Jump Final from Mexico 2015.







Finally, let’s go to the Pro Mens Trick final from Mexico in 2016. These guys are amazing.







Here is an amazing way to enjoy Canada with an inspiring cross-Canada canoe odyssey from 2011. These paddlers went from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean (7,600 km), raising awareness and funds for the Nature Conservancy of Canada.







This might be a nice way to end a day of water and sport. The artistic swimming (synchronized) from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2016.  









I hope you had a great day. Have a lovely evening.

Please send me your comments, suggestions for future 'days' or let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Please send me your feedback. It will help me build a better program for YOU.
