Lara commented on Cane Day [UPDATED]

Hey All, thanks for all the comments! We are now prototyping our idea, Cane day!
And created a Facebook event, we try to invite people and ask them to post pictures with canes and share their feedback! If they are willing to carry the canes around for a day- or if they are interested in designing canes for this cause! We would appreciate if you can help to make our voice heard as well or if you can give us any feedback, that will help a lot too! Kate Rushton Bettina Fliegel Anne-Laure Fayard There is the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1753991574912767/?

Lara commented on Dance classes

Thank you for the tip Kate, I updated! :)
I think it is fun way to encourage people to exercise, and as Prof. Fayard said it can also attract all citizens too, not necessarily for only seniors. That way, seniors also won't feel too isolated from the society. In addition to that, in my previous interview with the physiotherapist, he told me his patients who exercise with him are mostly men, so I think dance classes are good way to involve women into exercising as well..
