The Importance of Wellness for Seniors

Seniors playing cards as part of their senior living activity program.

When you consider what “wellness” means to you, what do you think? For many of us, we consider physical wellbeing, like healthy eating and regular exercise. While being physically fit is vital to your overall health, in reality, wellness means so much more than that.

Wellness goes beyond maintaining physical health to include mental, spiritual and social wellbeing. In other words, your mind and relationships are just as necessary as your physical health to experience total wellness.

At Heritage Senior Living, we recognize the importance of every dimension of senior wellness. That’s why we offer our life enrichment programming at each of our Wisconsin senior living communities with activities designed to help you focus on your health and wellbeing.

Our Senior Living Activity Program

Heritage Senior Living’s life enrichment program calendars vary from community to community, but they all provide an all-encompassing schedule of physical, mental, spiritual and social activities for residents. Plus, our Wisconsin-themed monthly calendar offers residents the opportunity to explore the history and traditions of the state through educational programs, entertainment, outings and food.

Here are a few examples of activities you may find at a Heritage community:

  • Daily exercise like Flex, Fit & Fun, walking clubs and Wii gaming
  • Intergenerational activities, such as reading with family members or going through your family tree
  • Hands-on arts and crafts projects
  • Seasonal baking – especially during the holiday season!
  • Musical entertainment
  • Non-denominational religious services
  • Movie nights
  • Book clubs, whatever genre you may be interested in
  • Cards and board games
  • Special guests and presentations
  • Discussions on current news

The best part of our life enrichment programming? The personalization. At Heritage Senior Living, we take a person-centered approach to care. This means we work with each resident to ensure their overall health and wellness goals are being met – whether it be proper hydration, fall prevention or rehabilitation following a hospital stay.

Our life enrichment directors are responsible for the activity calendars, and they work hard to get to know what each and every resident enjoys. By spending time with the residents, our life enrichment directors are able to plan and schedule activities everyone will enjoy!

Of course, activities look a little different this year with the current COVID-19 pandemic. But please be assured that the safety of our community is of the upmost importance – proper precautions are being taken and our activity calendars are filled with safe, socially distanced activities.

Heritage’s person-centered life enrichment program is just one example of the advantages of senior living. Everything you need to maintain overall wellness is right within the community that you call home – all you have to do is choose what you want to participate in!

Our Senior Wellness Program is Only One Benefit of Heritage Senior Living

Beyond the life-enrichment programming, you’ll find everything you need in a community you call home at Heritage Senior Living. Leave the maintenance and yard work to us and relax with new friends, excellent services and unbeatable surroundings.

From personalized apartments and exquisite culinary creations to state-of-the-art design, Heritage communities ensure residents have what they need to continue their rich and fulfilling lives. Many of our communities also offer a full continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living, enhanced assisted living and memory care, so your healthcare needs will be met now and in the future.
