According to a landmark MacArthur Foundation study, your lifestyle — not your genetic makeup — is the major determinant in how well you’ll age. This 10-year study led to new thinking and a new approach to retirement living called Masterpiece Living®.
Through our partnership with Masterpiece Living®, a nationally recognized successful aging initiative, our residents find abundant wellness opportunities at their fingertips. Our purposeful programming empowers you to embrace four factors that affect your well-being — intellectual, physical, social and spiritual — rather than just one. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Masterpiece Living takes research-based findings and works with residents to develop a road map for protecting their future health.
We begin with a Masterpiece Living review to explore your personal goals. Together, we’ll identify opportunities you can use to make the pursuit of multidimensional wellness a natural part of your everyday life. The choices are almost limitless, and they’re always yours to make.
All our wellness initiatives are based on these four aspects:
- Social: To interact, harmonize and grow your circle of friends by participating in and increasing social activities, as well as not feeling lonely.
- Intellectual: To challenge and expand your mind by increasing rates of intellectual activity and engagement with others via the internet.
- Physical: To improve balance, mobility, strength and endurance by engaging in regular aerobic activity, eating more fruits and vegetables, and participating in strength activities.
- Spiritual: To continue to live with meaning and purpose by increasing your volunteering and level of spiritual activity.
