Brain Health University: giving older adults tools to protect cognitive function

In 2002, to support healthier, more fulfilling lives for residents, SLC focused on the meaning of wellness for this population. “The basis for our quest was the World Health Organization’s publication on the six dimensions of wellness,” says RonnDa Peters, vice president of marketing. “David Koelling, vice president of corporate operations, and Terry Fay, corporate director of resident programs, led the charge to package a wellness-focused environment using the six dimensions—physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and vocational—into a signature program, Fit for Life” (since rebranded Wellness Everyday™). The program received an ICAA Industry Innovators Award in 2003.
