 What is TIME™ at Home?

TIME™ at Home is a pre-recorded exercise program hosted by a live virtual facilitator. This 60-minute program includes a seated warm-up and cool down, and 40 minutes of exercise done in standing, practicing movements used in day-to-day life. Exercises have been adapted from the classic in-person TIME™ program to be done safely at home. Opportunity for online social interaction is incorporated before or after each class.

Information for Participants

Is TIME™ at Home right for you?

TIME™ at Home is best suited for people with balance and mobility challenges, meaning that they may use a cane or walker to get around and find it harder to walk in the community but can walk 10 or more meters. This program is not suited for individuals who need help from another person while standing, walking, or getting up from a chair.

When following along with the exercise video, participants will need to self-pace and self-select the exercises that are at the right level for them. Participants will also need some basic equipment at home, including a sturdy chair for sitting, hand support for balance (such as a countertop), and a non-slip step or target using items from around the home. Participants will also need an email address and reliable internet access in order to join the classes from their computer or tablet.
