April 28, 2023
McKnight Senior Living published a very eye awakening article regarding the wellness of home environment, specifically Life Plan Communities versus othe Older Adult living choices.
Overall, the study found that residents continued to report better physical, emotional, social, intellectual and vocational wellness, but lower spiritual wellness, compared with community-dwelling older adults.
“We were cautiously excited regarding Year 1 results, where residents rated themselves higher on five of the six dimensions of wellness,” Mather President and CEO Mary Leary told McKnight’s Senior Living. “In Year 5, we realized this was no fluke, because they continued to rate themselves higher on the same dimensions.”
