Developed in 2005 by Toronto Rehab physiotherapists, Together in Movement and Exercise (TIME) is a community-based exercise class for former Nero Rehab Program patients and members of the community at large living with impairments of a stroke, brain injury, MS, Parkinson’s disease or other neurological conditions.
This collaboration between health care and community recreation facilities through the TIME program has resulted in an innovative and safe exercise program that is valued by participants.
About a dozen people meet each week at the YMCA in Wasaga Beach to exercise together with the goal of improving their mobility. It is the first time the program is being offered in this area but it is offered elsewhere in the province and across Canada, with four programs running in Toronto.
