We appreciate and acknowledge every resident’s individuality and their personal accomplishments and contributions during their life. Our Holistic Approach to Wellness is designed around this philosophy. We attempt to engage residents in social aspects of life that minimize loneliness and boredom.
Adapted from the Six Dimensions of Wellness developed by Dr. Bill Hettler from the National Wellness Institute (NWI), this model has been customized for Senior Living so that it blends occupational pursuits with environmental, cultural, and vocational interests, all of which fall under the Dimension of Wellness called “Community Connections.” Surpass Senior Living has added a Seventh Dimension of Wellness called “Intergenerational”, in recognition and support of the importance of seniors engaging regularly with other generations, including the very young, teenagers and young adults.
COMMUNITY-CENTERED ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT
By getting to know each resident on a personal level, we are able to offer activities and programming that engage all residents based on their desires. Our Traditions Program demonstrates resident-centered care by also utilizing the Seven Dimensions of Wellness that capture the essence of each resident – who they are, their lifetime of achievements, successes, and accomplishments – and then provides the tools for our community team to personally connect with each resident throughout the day.
THE 7 DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
The Seven Dimensions of Wellness represent the pillars of our resident programming and are a key component to our holistic approach to wellness and care.
Our residents are able to interact with multiple generations of people to fulfill their desire for meaningful life engagements with others of all ages.
Physical exercise is shown to slow physical deterioration while reducing the risk of falls.
We provide opportunities for residents to engage in the specific recreational activities they enjoy, including dominoes, checkers, card games, art, and musical memories.
Emotional wellness implies having an optimistic approach to life and enjoying life despite the occasional disappointments and frustrations. We encourage residents to engage in programs and to be active.
This engages residents on a cognitive level. Our One Week University program engages residents in lectures from top professors and local resources. We believe that learning doesn’t end the day you reach retirement age; it’s a lifelong process.
Spiritual activities aid in the psychological and emotional well being of our residents. We provide times of meditation, song, and prayer in an atmosphere that is open to our residents' diverse spiritual traditions.
We encourage residents to continue to serve others. This instills a sense of purpose and engages the local community in our programming. Our Board of Advisors contributes to our community connections.
