Five Dimensions of Wellness
At Wickshire Senior Living, we believe that there are five dimensions to wellness, all of which must be maintained for someone to remain healthy. Fortunately, we strive to support seniors in these five areas, ensuring their long-term health and vitality.
Physical well-being is one of the first things people think of when they think of wellness. As part of our approach at Wickshire Senior Living Norman, we help older adults maintain their physical health each day. We offer healthy and delicious snacks between meals, but we also provide nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition, we provide a wide array of fun and stimulating ways to exercise for people of various ability levels.
How a person feels can affect their ability to manage their lifestyle, mental health, and do everyday activities. Furthermore, seniors’ ability to react to their feelings and experiences is different than it was when they were younger. However, at Wickshire, we help our residents successfully manage stress and adapt to life’s difficulties.
Many older adults find that as they age, their ability to interact with others also diminishes. In many cases, they find themselves lonely and isolated, with few people visiting them regularly, which can lead to mental health issues. However, this isn’t the case at Wickshire. As part of our 5 dimensions of wellness, we encourage our residents to interact with other people regularly and provide plenty of exciting activities where they’re able to do so.
Spiritual wellness involves the systems of beliefs, faith, values, morals, and ethics on which a person builds their life. We strongly encourage all of our residents to live their lives on their moral and belief systems through a range of activities, such as:
- Volunteer activities
- Social occasions
- Religious services
- Group activities
In many cases, these activities give our residents a sense of purpose and well-being.
Intellectual wellness is just as essential as any of the other four dimensions of wellness. This term refers to the resident’s active participation in community, cultural, and scholastic activities. We encourage our residents to continue exercising their brains through regular educational activities. We also offer a fully-stocked library that residents can browse to their hearts’ content.
