Giving Back – Turning Leaf

At Turning Leaf, we’re seeing people differently. We see that man on the street, disheveled, dirty, talking to himself, asking for money. Many see just a homeless, mentally ill panhandler.

We see Albert. A brother, and a son. We’re committed to people like Albert and to his family.

Turning Leaf (Inc.) is dedicated to providing crisis intervention and treatment services to youth and adults experiencing intellectual challenge and mental illness. Turning Leaf is compassionate, trained people helping those vulnerable and marginalized while they struggle with the seemingly insurmountable obstacles of homelessness, poverty, victimization, isolation, and loneliness. With services throughout Manitoba, Turning Leaf offers those that are hurting with housing, addictions treatment, women’s shelters, and counselling. These services all work tirelessly to make lasting relationships, support healthy change, and, above all, share hope.

Visit or call 204-221-5594 to hear more about how we see people differently … and how you can too.

Choosing the Right Lift Chair

Re-New Mobility has been the number one choice in the community for helping seniors and people with mobility problems. We have an amazing selection of home health care products. One of our popular products is the Lift Chair. Lift chairs come in many styles and sizes. Being properly fitted is very important for safety. We make sure that you are truly aware that one size does not fit all. Each chair is made for certain height and weight capacities. There are various quality manufacturers that offer power lift chairs. We will help you determine the best chair for the particular need. Many chairs lay down in a full sleeper position. Zero gravity positions offer many benefits such as back relief, improved circulation, and expanded lung capacity. Also, many chairs are the standard 2 and 3 way positions. There is virtually no limit in style and comfort in today’s lift chairs.

Our Chakras

The Chakras connects us to our bodies’ wisdom. When we understand the chakra system it allows us to have an emotional mapping of our body and learn what it is saying. Each of the 7 chakras connects to specific organs, emotional beliefs and healing patterns in our bodies. We can think of each chakra as a disk that contains programming information about our lives and how to live it.

For example; the base chakra contains our “survival programming” how we trust, get our needs met and feel safe in the world. Our second chakra is about receiving pleasure and expressing our emotions. Our third chakra is our power centre and how we digest information and trust our guts. Knowing what our bodies are saying and needing frees us from dis-ease and brings energy and life force into our lives.

Join us for Chakra workshop held March 19th 6:30-9:30pm and March 20th 9-4pm.

How’s your posture?

Sitting at your desk reading this right now? How long have you been sitting for? Is your neck or back feeling tight and achy?
Let Prairie Trail Physiotherapy help you with that!

Today’s society involves prolonged postures, which can put stress and strain on certain muscles, leading to pain and tightness. During these sustained positions, some muscles get long and weak, while others get short and tight. A skilled physiotherapist can perform a full assessment, determine which areas may be leading to your less than optimal posture, and develop a treatment plan to enable you to withstand the physical stresses of your work day.

Learning a musical instrument is good for your health?

Yes, you read that correctly! Learning a musical instrument – whether it a flute, percussion, or voice – is about more than learning to read notes on a page. The process carries along with it many benefits for your physical and mental health. First of all, playing an instrument unites the right and left sides of the brain like no other activity as it activates your auditory, language and memory functions all at the same time. Singing, along with many other musical activities, also involves considerable breath control.

As in yoga, the deep breathing has a great calming effect on the body in addition to supplying oxygen to your cells. And, what’s more, mastering a skill and cultivating the discipline to progress as a musician creates positive habits and develops a sense of confidence that can benefit you in all areas of your life. So, if you’ve never tried it before – and even if you have – consider taking some music lessons or join a musical group for fun. You won’t regret it!



MELT…the easy, fun, fast workout for your Connective Tissue (CT) and fascia is truly for everyone!

You can do it at home in 10 minute.

Staying at Home vs. Assisted Living

Done & Done Family Concierge Services

Part Two: Elders at home

Most of us enjoy the surroundings of our own home, and seniors are no exception. Assisted living has its benefits, but can be an expensive and unwelcome change. There is help available, but many find that existing home care services are limited in their ability to assist. A ride to an appointment, help with groceries, and tackling yard work could result in 3 different people in & out of the home. It can be difficult to fill all these needs.  Homeowners prefer full service from a familiar face.  Helping our clients solve these challenges is what we love to do. We are always on the lookout for Great Clients!
