July is Social Wellness month, but what does that mean? Social Wellness can be defined as the ability to create and interact with a positive support system surrounding oneself, including friends, family, neighbors, and more. More simply put, Social Wellness encourages people to interact with others in ways that are positive to their physical, emotional, and mental health.
Social Wellness is key in ensuring a positive life experience for all ages. Going out to lunch with friends, having family over for a game night, or getting together with your neighbors to get to know one another are all examples of how to actively encourage social wellness for yourself and others. Building relationships between our residents, their families, and our staff is key to Social Wellness.
Melody Living’s assisted living community continuously focuses on the 8 Dimensions of Wellness; Emotional, Physical, Occupational, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Spiritual, and of course, Social. We work hard to cultivate a plethora of activities every month to ensure each member of the Melody Living community has the opportunity to participate in actively building and maintaining their Social Wellness.
From the Foodies Committee to various daily on-site activities including art classes, movies, and exercise classes; we are consistently working to promote Social Wellness into our daily activities. Our calendar is filled each day with new activities for our residents to partake in. Melody Living also takes our residents on various day trips to promote Social Wellness within the Colorado Springs community by going places such as town hall, Garden of the Gods, or local museums.
Social Wellness doesn’t just pertain to people either, pets and animals also help to promote Social Wellness. Which is why Melody Living’s assisted living neighborhood is not only pet-friendly, we also bring in therapy dogs to visit with residents.
There’s never a dull moment in our senior retirement home. We take great pride in creating an environment that promotes Social Wellness between our staff, residents, their friends, and families.
