of the Iona Presbyterian congregation, as well as the members of the St. Cyprian's
Anglican Church are fortunate to have a Parish Nursing ministry right at their
doorstep. Staffed by a registered nurse, everyone should be asured that tender
loving care is just a phone call away. Whatever your need or complaint, they are
dedicated to be of service. Often, all that is needed is a compassionate ear or
a contact number to connect with a service or source of help.

After a year
of searching for leadership for a Seniors' Exercise Class, the Parish Nursing
Ministry is thrilled to announce that the class started on Wed. Jan. 11, 2012!
The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College has willingly undertaken leadership
of the group and developed an excellent program suitable for participants with
varied levels of mobility and other restrictions. Participants can do exercises
either seated or standing to the level of their tolerance. The weekly class is
open to members of the four congregations (Iona Presbyterian, St. Christopher's
Anglican, St. Cyprian's Anglican, and Trinity Mandarin) who worship in the building
and also to the community. We currently have close to 30 members in the class.
Not only has this provided a valuable health promotion activity for the churches
and community, but it also provides Clinic Interns (pre-graduate students) at
CMCC with valuable experience working with the participants. Classes are planned
and run by the interns and supervised by registered Chiropractors who are teaching
faculty at the College. The program is definitely a win-win situation for all
involved. Margaret Black, Parish Nurse, would like to express the participants'
gratitude to Dr. Jarrod Goldin, DC, and his students, and to the Canadian Memorial
Chiropractic College for helping to make this dream a reality.
