SHD Observes National Seniors Day

October 1, 2023 – On #NationalSeniorsDay, we join Canadians in celebrating older adults, with gratitude for their accomplishments and contributions to the diverse tapestry of Canada’s culture. Be it in the workplace, our communities or within our homes, this invaluable group continues to shape and guide all generations of Canadians.

Physiotherapy professionals work every day with older persons, helping them maximize their recovery, preventing injury at the source, managing their chronic pain and supporting their ability to age in place. We are proud to support a profession that is helping older Canadians live healthier, more mobile and active lives.
