Exercise & Falls Prevention Classes

Want to join one of our Exercise and Falls Prevention classes? These classes maintain and expand exercise levels to improve range of motion and help prevent falls.

There is no fee for Exercise & Falls Prevention classes. In Durham Region, two organizations have been identified as preferred providers for exercise and falls prevention classes:

  • Oshawa Senior Citizens Centres (OSCC), who are responsible for classes in Oshawa, Whitby and Courtice. You can contact OSCC at: (905) 576-6712 or info@oscc.ca.
  • Community Care Durham (CCD), is responsible for classes in Ajax, Pickering, Clarington, Scugog, Uxbridge and Brock. Locations and contact information are listed below.

Classes are open to not only the residents of the facilities listed below, but to members of the community as well, at no cost.
