Programming with Purpose
August 17th 2022
Our purposeful programming touches on a multi-faceted approach to ensuring there are engaging and enriching events and activities for all that includes our whole-body wellness approach to senior living.
You will see on any of our community websites’ Life Enrichment calendars categories that further provide what we strive for. There are activities and events that support and enhance a variety of dimensions of wellness, including physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual well-being.
Our communities also strive to be good neighbors who are actively engaged with one another at home and with their local community beyond our community walls. There are two engagement opportunities that specifically support the social wellness of our residents through connection with others.
The Community Ambassador Program
The Community Ambassador program is a program designed to welcome and show hospitality to new neighbors, as well as our neighbors in the larger community, neighborhood and cities our communities call home. Community Ambassadors are residents living in our communities who are passionate about welcoming new neighbors and helping them integrate into their new home over their first few weeks and months. It can be overwhelming to move into a new home at any age, and who better to help guide and support new neighbors than those who have been there themselves! Our Community Ambassadors can help reduce the risk of loneliness by showing these new neighbors our graceful hospitality and friendship.
The Graceful Giving Program
The Graceful Giving Program goes beyond simply welcoming people into the community and asks our residents to reach out to connect with the community-at-large in a positive, productive way through community service and philanthropic opportunities. Each quarter, the residents choose a local cause or organization to support through community service and partnership. We provide both at-home and external options to give back to the community and support a local cause or organization that is important to our residents!
Our community teams strive to get to know each resident that calls their community home and focus in on what each person is passionate about, curious about, or looks forward to throughout the year to ensure that what we provide is the creation of a community that is eager to engage and connect. Each community is unique in what lights up their lives and gives them strength, and we are eager and excited to craft and shape activities and events to best suit them.
