One of your roles as part of a wellness team is to help guide older adults to be as independent as possible. People who are introduced to wellness programs will find that the greater the mind/body connection is, the more confidence and independence they will have. As a purveyor of wellness, a challenge you face is that most of your clients have diverse wellness issues within a wide range of physical and cognitive abilities. Each person’s issues differ from another’s. Therefore, you need to develop a comprehensive wellness program that can individualize these diverse needs so each person can reach overall wellness. This will help build confidence and maintain independence that directly impacts daily life.
