The programs offered at Centennial Place fall into the following three categories:
The Personal Wellness groups focus on a very wide variety of topics and interests which support our members in their individual goals, hopes and dreams. All the programs offered are based on and started through member request and interest, and are limited only by the imagination of our members. We encourage our members to find a healthy balance of activity within our programming while still actively taking responsibility for their lives outside of Centennial Place. A few examples of these include but are in no way limited to: Stress Reduction, Support, Mindfulness, Spirituality Discussion and groups. Through a strength based approach alongside exposure to new areas of learning and growth our members engage together in a supportive and vibrant community of health and wellness.
The roles of working and volunteering are vital aspects of a persons wellness and are a huge focus here at Centennial Place. Members have the opportunity to work one on one with our Employment Specialist and receive support with job search, interview skills, etc. We also refer members to appropriate sources which can assist them with resumes, cover letters etc. Members can work with our Employment Specialist to complete a Career Discovery activity, which uses work interest, personality traits, values, preferred environments, and learning styles to craft individualised themes and help members find an ideal job match. We also offer multiple training series which support individuals through the adjustment process of being a new employee in his or her new job. Based on interest and availability we also offer Food Safe, Serving It Right and First Aid certification for our members to obtain through Centennial Place.
At Centennial Place we believe in a holistic approach to our individual as well as collective health. This includes the exercising of our body and mind through activities such as walking and sports as well as outings to various events. Relaxing and removing unnecessary distractions and stress is also vitally important and can be achieved through meditation, relaxation and time spent with friends. Members can also take part in our monthly meetings which allow for discussion around new programs and activities.
