A Holistic Approach to Senior Living Wellness
Wellness [WEL-nis] noun: the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.
This definition of wellness points out the reality of wellness: it’s a journey we’re continually on. At The Moorings at Lewes, we take on wellness for seniors through our LivWell program. This award-winning program focuses on every dimension of health through activities offered at every Springpoint community. Learn about how The Moorings at Lewes encourages residents to participate in every aspect of their health below.
The 7 Dimensions of Wellness for Seniors at The Moorings at Lewes
1. Physical Wellness
Physical wellness is the first step to full-body health. To help residents stay active and moving, we offer activities like tai chi and Body Balance classes.
2. Intellectual Wellness
A healthy mind is imperative to reducing the risks of cognitive decline. To stay mentally active, you can participate in the campus Scrabble Club or Tea and Trivia weekly meetups. You can also sign up for classes with our Osher Lifelong Learning program in association with the University of Delaware.
3. Emotional Wellness
Your happiness is an important factor in your overall health. Participating in activities and events that bring you joy is one way to maintain your emotional wellness. To find activities at The Moorings at Lewes that interest you, check out our Residents’ Association page.
4. Social Wellness
Getting involved with your community is a key component to your health. As an incredibly social community, The Moorings at Lewes has a multitude of weekly activities such as game groups and our Drop in Color Group to get you socializing. If you want to get off campus for a while, invite a neighbor to take a stroll with you around the town or on the beach!
5. Spiritual Wellness
No matter your beliefs, they’re a core part of you and your wellness. We want to encourage residents to continue exploring their personal values and sense of purpose. As a community where all voices are heard, there are opportunities for everyone to articulate their beliefs and values.
6. Environmental Wellness
Because we only have one planet, partaking in activities which help preserve and protect our environment can have an impact on our overall health. At The Moorings at Lewes, we’re proud to have an established Butterfly Garden and beehive for residents to enjoy and learn about while helping the Monarch butterfly and bee populations.
7. Vocational Wellness
Sharing your knowledge and talents with others can give you a feeling of gratification and accomplishment. If you want to pass your knowledge along to others in the community, our Residents’ Association is always adding new events and programs which you can plan or lead.
