Wellness for Seniors in Lincolnshire, IL
Empowering your pursuit of wellness in all its forms.
It has long been understood that wellness is about more than freedom from illness, and moreover, pursuing it should continue no matter your age. Not only can wellness enhance your health and improve your mood, but it can provide you with feelings of fulfillment, opportunities for socialization, and a sense of purpose and identity. To achieve this, it’s important to focus on holistic wellness.
True holistic wellness includes body, mind and spirit working in harmony to create a rich, active and fulfilling life. At Sedgebrook, our Health & Wellness Navigation Program™ handles health care logistics, contributes to longevity, enriches the resident experience, and focuses on the 8 dimensions of wellness.
These 8 dimensions of wellness consist of physical, intellectual, environmental, spiritual, vocational, social and emotional health, as well as health services. When focused on together, these aspects create a whole-person approach to health and well-being.
At Sedgebrook, we offer a wide variety of activities and amenities that empower you to remain in control of your life, enhance your fitness level, and maintain an overall sense of wellness.
