Health & Wellness

The mission of the Westminster Towers Wellness Program is to improve the quality of life of each resident physically, psychologically, and spiritually by offering purposeful exercise programs and activities that address individual health needs, quality of life, and to encourage successful aging campus-wide.

The Westminster Towers Wellness Philosophy is inter-woven into the daily fabric of lifestyle choices.

The Seven Dimensions of Wellness focuses on the wholeness of the individual:

1. Emotional:

The awareness and understanding of one’s own thoughts and feelings and those of others. Emotionally well people recognize their worth, seek out opportunities to develop positive relationships, and have an enthusiastic attitude towards life.

2. Environmental:

Both inside and outside, is the creation of and participation in safe and inviting surroundings. Environmentally well people seek interdependence and harmony through an active partnership with their environment.

3. Intellectual:

The engagement of the mind through continuous learning opportunities. Intellectually well people actively participate in stimulating activities and use a variety of resources to expand their knowledge and skills.

4. Physical:

The demonstration of respect of one’s health and body. Physically well people make a commitment to maintain an active, fulfilling lifestyle by minimizing negative risky behavior, getting adequate rest and nutrition, and participating in physical activity.

5. Social:

The willingness to develop, maintain and appreciate relationships. Socially active people show concern for others, value friendships, respect diversity, and contribute to the overall well-being of the community in which they live.

6. Spiritual:

The personal commitment one has to God and/or the discovery of meaning and purpose in life. Spiritually well people live out their core values, beliefs and have an appreciation for that which cannot be explained. They strive for inner peace, security and respect individual differences.

7. Vocational:

The use of personal gifts, skills, interest, talents, and knowledge for the good of others, organizations, and communities. Vocationally well people actively seek to learn new skills and serve others with their abilities.

Also available is occupational, physical and speech therapy on an outpatient basis.
