Wellness is defined as “the quality or state of being in good health, especially as an actively sought goal.”
At Monroe Village, we encourage wellness through programming and amenities designed to inspire. Because wellness isn’t a destination — it’s a journey that involves constant attention. LivWell is the holistic wellness program in our community that works to address all seven dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, environmental, spiritual and vocational. By offering activities that fit into each of these dimensions, residents have the ability to actively participate in the journey of wellness in day-to-day life in the community.
At Monroe Village, our comprehensive, award-winning senior wellness program, LivWell, goes far beyond traditional senior living activities like fitness classes and Bingo. Recognized for innovation by LeadingAge New Jersey, our LivWell philosophy is “to provide the opportunity to engage in experiences which support a high quality of life, personal choice, lifelong development and an optimal sense of well-being.”
The reason LivWell at Monroe Village is a successful wellness program? Resident opinion drives the programming. Every year a survey is filled out by residents asking for feedback about aspects they like and don’t like about community activities. The LivWell team uses these findings to find quality activities and interests that satisfy the community as a whole. Steve Wean, the LivWell Program Manager, shares that one of the most successful programs to date is a sing-along recommended by a resident. Music is powerful with memory and being able to come together to enjoy the tunes increases socialization opportunities.
Our entire LivWell staff undergoes specialized training and work hand-in-hand with residents to develop our programming, ensuring all residents enjoy an engaging, stimulating life full of activities that mean the most to them. The fact is people can grow stronger, healthier and more engaged in life at any age — it’s never too late!
