Living Well® – Enriching Life

divider

Each day, an enriched life begins anew through the seven pillars of Living Well®–the Koelsch way to live with purpose, on purpose.

By serving every kind of skill and ability, we create personalized experiences for individuals to live well in community and thrive—ushering in moments of joy and connection.

Nature

Connecting with nature reduces our blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and stress hormones—creating a calm and more balanced living environment.

Art

Personalized creative expression and experiencing art forms rejuvenates the mind and has a significant impact on well-being. Family-Juried Art Shows, hands-on painting, crafting projects, and group projects benefit the community while keeping creative hands and minds nurtured.

Spirit

Expression of faith is a foundational element of identity for many. It plays a significant role in one knowing who they are and their place in the world.

Prayer, bible study, spiritual concerts, and religious services for residents provide an opportunity to grow and deepen their faith.

Mind & Body

Our thoughts, feelings, and attitudes strengthen or weaken our body; and our physical fitness directly impacts the clarity of our mind. Amazingly, our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are! Just as certain, what we do with our physical bodies (our diet, frequency of exercise) can impact our mental state.

Friends & Family

Community and family are both deep values of the Koelsch family. Every person served in our community is treated as one of our own—a part of the family. While here our ladies and gentlemen encounter new and long-lasting relationships with ample opportunity for family and friends to come and participate in dining experiences, special celebrations, and events.

Community

Socially-connected people are happier and healthier and continue to make valuable contributions to those around them. A full calendar of Living Well® experiences, excursions, events, and special monthly service projects that impact the local community is how Living Well promotes a sense of purpose.

Music

Toes tapping, hands waving, and smiles glowing are just the beginning of the benefits music has to offer. As cognitive needs increase, personalized musical experiences play an important role in shifting mood, stimulating positive interactions, and facilitating cognitive function in those with memory loss.

With over-ear headphone-based technology providing a limitless supply of playlists, and a variety of concerts and performances we are utilizing musical genres to motivate and inspire work, play, dance, love, grief, worship, and the sharing of stories.
