A healthy and happy retirement life requires a balance of six components: physical, social, cognitive/intellectual, emotional, spiritual and leisure. At Elmcroft Senior Living, we developed the Vitality Club program to make sure those needs are met for each of our residents.
What Is Vitality Club?
Vitality Club enhances the daily living environment in all of our Elmcroft communities and assures that we are providing all possible opportunities for our residents to happily engage in activities that suit their interests and preferences. These activities and programs are carefully designed to enhance the mental, physical and emotional health of our residents, and help them achieve a satisfying lifestyle.
How Vitality Club Works
Our Healthy Lifestyles Director and resident staff meet with each resident to determine their unique lifestyle needs. We want to know what they have enjoyed doing in the past and what they enjoy now about exercise, social interaction, mental stimulation, their emotional process, spiritual activities and leisure preferences. Perhaps they have always enjoyed outdoor activities, but a medical condition makes them hesitant to continue that practice. Or maybe a favorite hobby has been put on hold or they miss celebrating special occasions because of a lack of social network. Through this discovery, we get to know our residents on a personal level. Then, we create a personalized program of daily activities designed to reinvigorate residents’ interests and provide more options for fun and meaning each day.
Vitality Club Hallmark
A hallmark of our Vitality Club program is our Port of Call series. Each month our residents travel to an exciting, often exotic, location without leaving home. Our Port of Call series brings the sights, sounds and tastes of different locales to every Elmcroft community. Cultural activities can mean salsa music, a Cinco de Mayo celebration and tasty cuisine from south of the border when we celebrate the culture of Mexico. Or it could include a beret party, French pastry tastings and a screening of the Audrey Hepburn movie Funny Face when we explore Paris.
