Wellness refers to a set of habits a person practices to nurture their physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health.
Wellness culture has taken the world by storm, and modern assisted living communities like New Hope Senior Living have long recognized the benefits of a holistic approach to senior health. Wellness allows individuals to truly thrive rather than simply engaging in healthy habits to avoid or cure illness. By offering an experience that nurtures the mind, body, and spirit, assisted living communities like New Hope empower seniors to enjoy their retirement to the fullest.
Why Is Wellness Culture Beneficial for Seniors?
In 2023, we know wellness is about so much more than just physical health; it’s also a state of mental, social, emotional, and spiritual fulfillment. Unfortunately, seniors often face various issues that detrimentally impact these areas. For example:
- Seniors in retirement may feel unfulfilled, lonely, or need a sense of purpose after leaving full-time work.
- Seniors with poor mobility may be unable to exercise, prepare healthy meals, or practice self-care effectively.
- Seniors needing help finding transportation may miss social events, activities, or spiritual services.
By finding an assisted living community that considers every component of wellness, seniors can tackle common issues like these to rediscover a positive state of health and happiness.
Five Ways New Hope Senior Living Encourages Wellness
1.Offers daily opportunities for healthy socialization.
Loneliness is a key contributor to declining physical and mental health in seniors. Many older adults experience the loss of a spouse, family member, or close friend. Practical challenges like poor mobility and lack of transportation can also negatively impact a senior’s ability to get out of the house and enjoy meaningful social interactions.
At New Hope Senior Living, residents can socialize in a way that suits their personality every day, all within the comfort and safety of the home environment they know. With various activities on offer, including yoga, book club, and bake-offs, residents find purpose by pursuing hobbies in a nurturing and social setting. We also welcome and encourage visits from friends and family caregivers and host regular enriching outings for residents to enjoy.
2.Serves nutritious, hearty farm-to-table food daily.
Nutrition is the foundation upon which good health is built. New Hope Senior Living offers a dining experience to treat the tastebuds and properly fuel the body. Our residents benefit from freshly prepared farm-to-table meals every day. Using a few ingredients grown on-site, our chef prepares seasonally inspired dishes catered to residents’ likes and dietary requirements. At New Hope, mealtimes are a social occasion, and our residents relish catching up with friends around the dinner table.
3.Offers amenities that nurture physical and mental health.
Many seniors find getting out and about more challenging with age, so we aim to provide as many on-site conveniences as possible. Our salon allows residents to treat themselves to pampering as and when they please, helping them to look and feel their best with minimum hassle. Our beautiful home also features a rustic cherry wood library complete with cozy reading nooks – the perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon or evening downtime. Here, residents can enjoy their favorite novels or continue to stimulate their minds with self-education.
4.Provides high-quality, around-the-clock care and works closely with care partners.
We care for our residents as we would for our family members. Our skilled, compassionate caregivers are available 24/7 to support residents with activities of daily living (ADLs) as and when needed. As a small community, caregivers have the time to truly get to know each resident, allowing them to remain as independent as possible while receiving the support they need.
New Hope is also keen to adopt new technologies that help improve the level of care we can provide. For example, CarePredict allows us to track residents’ health, noticing and addressing changes that could lead to accidents, falls, or poor health outcomes as early as possible. We understand that a state of wellness is achieved when a person’s every need is properly cared for. That’s why we partner with a range of trusted specialists, so our residents can receive the personalized support plan they deserve. Each of our valued partners shares our mission to help seniors feel genuinely at home and fully supported within our community.
5.Empower residents to connect to nature on beautiful grounds.
New Hope Senior Living is situated within an impressive 18-acre expanse of stunning private land. We encourage residents to enjoy these grounds, wandering in the sunshine or using one of our state-of-the-art golf carts to explore. New Hope’s outdoor space features multiple tranquil relaxation spots ideal for reading, quiet reflection, or meditation, and residents can pick fruit and herbs.
