OF HEALTHCARE &
EIGHT DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESSMedford Leas’ health and wellness programs are guided by our Eight Dimensions of Wellness, a series of guiding principles that overlap and coordinate to provide rich environments for living and care.
1Feelings are the lens through which people view the world, and the ability to be aware of and direct one’s feelings helps to create balance in life. Coping with challenges and behaving in trustworthy and respectful ways signal emotional wellness.
3Engaging in physical activity, choosing healthy foods with adequate nutrition, getting adequate sleep, managing stress, making appointments for check-ups and following medical recommendations.
5Social interactions with family, friends, neighbors and chosen peer groups can be valuable for maintaining health. It includes maintaining personal contact by joining clubs, traveling, visiting friends and family or engaging in intergenerational experiences.
7Enjoying both indoor and outdoor environments.
2Engaging in creative pursuits and intellectually stimulating activities is a proven approach to keeping minds alert and interested.
4Work that utilizes a person’s skills while providing personal satisfaction is valuable for the individual as well as society. It includes participating in the paid and unpaid workforce, maintaining or improving skills, and helping others. Older adults contribute to society as experienced professionals, caregiver, mentors, teachers and volunteers.
6Living with a meaning and purpose in life, guided by personal values, is key to feelings of well-being and connection to the larger world. Group and individual faith-based activities, personal meditation, mindful exercise (yoga, tai chi), and experiencing nature can often create the opportunity for spiritual growth.
8Satisfaction with current and future financial situations.
