The exercise program at Dougherty Apartments was developed with the following aims:

  • To help each individual maintain strength, flexibility and balance
  • Promote continued independence through good mobility
  • Manage pain associated with injuries and/or ageing.

Many Residents attend the group exercise classes that run 3-5 times each week. Others are introduced to an individual program and the gymnasium equipment.


At Dougherty we have a small Gymnasium located on Level 3 for self care residents to use.
