Together in Movement and Exercise (TIME™) is a new, evidence based, exercise program designed for adults with stroke, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis or other mobility concerns. In partnership with Fraser Health’s Community REDi/ Outpatients Rehab and Vancouver Coastal Health.

TIME™ promotes better health and social connection for people living with chronic health conditions. Classes are one hour in duration and are held twice a week for 12 weeks.

Program: 12 weeks of classes (24 classes in total)
Program Fees: $255*

*Participants that are experiencing financial hardship are welcome to apply for Financial Assistance.

Eligibility:

Participants in the TIME™ program must be over the age of 18, experience balance and mobility challenges and are looking for a safe exercise program that suits their needs. For example, TIME™ participants may be living with:

  • Orthopaedic and neurological conditions such as stroke, brain injury and multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • The effects of aging
  • Weakness after an operation or extended hospital stay

To be eligible for the program, participants must be able to walk 10 metres with or without a walking aid (roughly the distance to cross the street in a residential neighbourhood).

In addition, participants must complete a TIME™ program waiver and program registration form prior to starting the program.

Steps to register:

  • Candidates must call or email to register for an upcoming 12 week class.  Participants will be asked to confirm if they are able to walk 10 meters with or without a walking aid.  Call 604.673.6179 or e-mail health@gv.ymca.ca
  • Participants must complete a TIME™ program waiver and program registration form prior to starting the class.
