Senior housing wellness needs — for both residents and staff — have never been greater than during this new age of COVID-19. Those needs reach into every area of daily resident life, from fitness and diet to programming and socialization.
A focus on wellness for the body, the mind and the spirit can help residents during the COVID-19 crisis, while also creating sustainable practices for the post-COVID world.
Wellness initiatives must also extend to staff, whose needs for mental health breaks throughout their shifts are greater when dealing with the additional stress of the pandemic. A focus on wellness throughout the community can also bring residents and staff closer together — while giving family members peace of mind.
