Zoomers on the Go program was created to reduce the number of factors that can increase the risk of falling for seniors in the Greater Saint John area. As we know, falls cause many problems for seniors and their ability to remain independent. In 2009, a survey was sent out to seniors living in the community to find out what they knew about falls and the risks of falling. Focus groups were held with senior groups and seniors residing in senior apartments as well. The information collected was used to develop this program with an aim to reduce falls in the older adult population of New Brunswick. There were many important points raised by seniors in Saint John, NB.

• Older adults do not see themselves at risk to fall. No one thinks it will happen to them.
• Many older adults do not know there are preventable factors that increase their risk of falling.
• Many older adults do not feel comfortable going to the gym for a variety of reasons: transportation issues, financial barriers to pay for gym memberships, uncomfortable following instructions from people of a younger age.
• Most older adults want to be more physically active.

Partnerships
UNB Fredericton and Fitness New Brunswick have developed a new training program to expand this program
in the province of New Brunswick.
Special thanks to the collaboration of the St. Joseph’s Community Health (who started this program and kept it
alive throughout the years because they believed in the important benefits), UNB Kinesiology CELLab,
Fitness New Brunswick, Horizon Health Network, Vitalité, and Pamela Wallace (the Physiotherapist who had the
original idea for a community based exercise program for older adults).
This program out of UNB was made possible by the NB Wellness Research Fund Grant
