Senior living communities across the country are confronting a changing population and diversifying customer base. The growing number of older adults and the strong emphasis on living healthier, longer lives and the desire to age in place means senior living communities must adjust to the changing needs of their customers. Wellness programs are becoming more prevalent in senior living communities across the country. Current information clearly indicates that wellness programming improves function and promotes successful living among older adults. The next generation of residents will demand wellness as a way of life. To remain competitive, continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) must adjust to the changing needs of their customers while also providing the results demanded by owners. Senior living communities that do not have wellness programs may suffer financially. New CCRCs designed with wellness centers, theatres, and other amenities are opening. Older communities must revamp activity schedules and space to provide the new generation of residents with the amenities they expect. A wellness program can develop over a period of time and be relatively inexpensive to begin. Developing a whole-person wellness program is not only the right thing to do; it is also the smart thing to do. Therefore, my goal is to develop a wellness program for an existing senior community that meets the goal of both residents and owners.
