No matter your age, developing and pursuing an active lifestyle is the best way to stay healthy and engage. For seniors, this is especially true. At Southfield senior independent living, we encourage all residents to cultivate a healthy and active lifestyle. By taking a proactive approach, Southfield health and wellness helps residents avoid illness and stay fit. While we may all understand what helps keeps us healthy like a balanced diet or regular exercise, what fosters wellness may be a bit less clear. For each individual, wellbeing will be different. However, even though wellness is unique for each person, Southfield health and wellness can provide resources to residents to meet their needs.
What is Wellness?
Wellness is a concept encompassing the whole person. It means balancing and optimizing an individual’s social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical needs. Broadly speaking, it’s a state of overall satisfaction with one’s living. When an individual feels themselves in control and free to pursue their interests, not only does their overall health improve but so does their involvement in their community. Thus, Southfield health and wellness looks to find ways to help residents cultivate their hobbies, learn new skills, explore interests, and meet new people.
Southfield offers a variety of services that focus on improving the health and wellness of our residents, including:
