The Centre is partially open (by appointment only) for footcare, the exercise room and takeout/delivery of soup and meals. We are still able to be a resource to you and have many online programs planned for you to take part in. Please send an email to [email protected] or call 204-987-8850 as we would love to chat and help you with whatever we can. Although we are opening more slowly, we are hopeful/planning to be open for Cards this Friday and Scrabble on the16th! We appreciate your patience as we navigate reopening slowly and safely!
Our Exercise Room is now re-open! Appointments are available Monday- Friday (New). Due to the restrictions- only one person can work out in a time slot. Masks must be worn the entire time. Call 204-987-8850 to book your 1 hour gym time slot. (If there is high interest in using the gym, we will limit the number of time slots one can book a week).
Who We Are
St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre
“To encourage older adults to improve their quality of life by providing educational, recreational, health and social opportunities.”
Fostering a Culture of Caring:
As a community that cares about the people we serve and its mission we recognize that it is important to talk about what we believe. Outlining key points of what we want to be for and to each other gives all of us direction and important marker points that help us understand the culture of caring that we want to intentionally promote here at the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre.
As a result we at the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre:
1. Recognize that our people (members, staff, volunteers, guests) are coming from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences and we intentionally make room for all.
2. Commit to treating each other with kindness and respect. Standing up for others when we see them being mistreated and helping each other when needed.
3. Realize that differences sometimes lead to conflict but as these conflicts take place we will:
a. Address our issues and concerns directly with the source in a kind way seeking mutual understanding and respect of differences all the while looking for middle ground.
b. Refrain from talking/gossiping with others about our conflicts
c. Seek help from staff when we feel advice is needed or the situation requires 3rd party help and/or intervention
Our commitment to support and care for each other is at the very heart of our mission and cornerstone of the kind of people we want to be to each other. Just as schools today do not tolerate the mistreatment and bullying of others we too will not allow other members, staff or volunteers to be treated with disrespect. Anyone who is unable to follow the above guidelines will be given the opportunity to correct their behavior but failure to follow through will result in termination of membership.
