While our physical health is strengthened by a healthy diet and regular exercise, it's important to take care of our mental health, too! We prioritize our residents' mental wellbeing by encouraging a variety of mindfulness practices. One of these practices, meditation, is a powerful strategy that can lower stress levels and even alleviate physical pain.
We want each of our residents to always feel safe, supported, and happy, and that starts with cultivating social and emotional wellbeing.
