If you want to ensure that your residents can successfully EngAge in Place in your senior living community, read on!

As you are well aware, the industry is abuzz with all things proactive health and wellness + overall well-being as we continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, more than ever, individuals want to take charge of their well journey and Senior Housing and Long-term Care providers alike, want to be able to provide solutions on how best to encourage active participation in a robust (and impactful!) wellness program!

RISE Senior Living consultants & experts offer the following solutions to maximize this opportunity for your residents:

 1. Drive Programming Through Evidence-Based Research + Data Analytics
Do your residents actively participate in programs in your community? Are you noticing a decline in the overall function of your residents? Do you promote independence, health, and wellness? How effectively are you measuring participation, satisfaction, and overall success of your program? A recent study from the University of Michigan School of Nursing noted low physical activity and high sedentary behavior among assisted living residents. This contributes to a decline in function as well as mental health issues related to depression, anxiety, and social isolation.

 RISE Senior Living consultants complete a comprehensive review of your community’s offerings and will collaborate with you to develop a plan for a robust program targeting identified opportunities for social and functional programming that truly embodies a proactive + holistic approach!

2. Expert Oversight
Are you wondering how you can expand your wellness offerings? How can you address ALL of your residents' needs (encompassing all 6 dimensions of wellness: physical, spiritual, emotional, vocational, intellectual, and social)? The RISE Senior Living team has created a robust wellness program, SHINE, overseen by a wellness coordinator. SHINE targets all dimensions of wellness and was developed by clinicians who emphasize not only active participation but also encompass many amazing health benefits. By putting your residents in the driver’s seat of their well-journey, it helps to ensure they are actively EngAging in place and receiving the right services in the right place and at the right time.

3.  Be Strategic
As the adage states: “What’s gotten you here, is not enough to assure success in the future.” Senior housing leaders will shape the industry’s future by embracing new models of care; offering differentiated services & amenities; changing up traditional, or staid clinical and/or business practices.
