Over the past fifty years, we have developed strategic plans embracing bigger is better. Along the way, we learned bigger is not better.
Better is better.
We are done with big expansion plans and now focused on creating extraordinary experiences for our residents, peace of mind for their loved ones, and meaningful work for our team.
This monumental shift was shaped by our board of directors and leaders. It is guided by the preferences and opinions of those we serve and their loved ones.
Today, we are about the important work of creating moments of connection, joy, and delight. This shift is reflected in the emphasis and direction of our work. It is supported by implementing innovative programs and services throughout our campus.
We are making plans to magnify our person-centered care successes by developing and implementing Touching Spirits, an integrated approach to caring for the body, mind, and spirit of our residents.
Long known for our integrative approach to care, one of our next initiatives will be to develop and implement a coherent, comprehensive program of integrative care modalities and train all members of our team in the basics of Healing Touch. We currently offer Healing Touch, Reiki, aromatherapy, and essential oils. We are working on offering massage, guided imagery and visualization, Sign Chi Do and seated Tai Chi, and music therapies like reverie harps and drum circles.
The Touching Spirits program will focus on possibilities, concentrate on opportunities for connection and joy, and create moments of delight.
