Keep Well combines a fitness program with wellness activities. The first Keep Well Program was established in 1987 at the North Shore Neighbourhood House, as a result of local seniors wanting a program to support them to stay healthy and lead active and independent lives. While only three participants attended the first drop-in session, word spread quickly, and by the following year the program had expanded to three different sites. In 1991, the North Shore Keep Well Society was incorporated, and Keep Well is now in its 29th year.
