Ask five different people what the term â€śwellnessâ€ť means to them, and youâ€™ll likely get five different answers. Thatâ€™s because the idea of wellness is often viewed through the lens of oneâ€™s current stage in life. What wellness means to a 65 year old recent retiree will probably be different than to a 25 year old new mother.
However, regardless of oneâ€™s stage in life, there are distinct areas of wellnessâ€”coined the Six Dimensions of Wellness by the National Institute of Wellnessâ€”that create the foundation of healthy living. Maintaining an optimal level of wellness in all areas is crucial to living a higher quality of life.
Weâ€™ve touched on each of the six dimensions here on the blog over the past several months, and we also had a chance to sit down with Lois Buntz, a member of the Meth-Wick board of directors.
As the chair of the Quality Resident Life committee, Loisâ€™ goal is to encourage residents to thrive through access to quality health services, a robust community life, and a culture of personalized wellness. Watch as she shares the different ways residents can experience each of the six dimensions of wellness at Meth-Wick Community.
