More than physical health and fitness, wellness is the full integration of an individual’s emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, environmental and social well-being. At Eddy Senior Living, this integrated, multi-dimensional approach to wellness helps set us apart from other independent and assisted living communities in the Albany NY area.
The 7 Dimensions of Wellness
Physical – choosing lifestyle habits that improve and maintain health and functional ability, including a balanced diet and exercise.
Social – interacting and connecting with others, establishing and maintaining positive relationships, and participating in the larger community.
Emotional – acknowledging and sharing feelings, as well as coping with life’s challenges and behaving in trustworthy and respectful ways.
Intellectual – engaging in creative pursuits, opening the mind to new experiences and ideas, and participating in intellectually stimulating activities, including problem solving and reasoning.
Spiritual – establishing harmony in life, living with meaning and purpose, and exploring beliefs and values that create personal peace and understanding.
Vocational – maintaining or improving skills, learning new concepts, and feeling a sense of productivity, accomplishment and satisfaction with the work produced.
Environmental – respecting nature, making a positive impact on the environment, and using it in ways that contribute to a healthier home, community and planet.
Our Senior Living Communities Have a Unique Approach to Wellness
At Eddy Senior Living, we understand that each dimension of wellness contributes to an individual’s quality of life, and each affects the others. While one aspect may be more pronounced at times, neglect of any one dimension for an extended period of time can have adverse effects on your loved one’s overall health.
We believe that aging adults have the capacity to grow, develop, modify and change. No matter the age, Eddy Senior Living residents have the potential to optimize their health and well-being in mind, body and spirit.
