As a member of the MBK Senior Living family, we have a strong belief in the mind-body connection. That is why we developed MBKonnection, our resident wellness program. Every month, we put together a calendar of activities, classes, and programming to boost the emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual wellbeing of our residents. By promoting the health of both the mind and body, Almond Heights’s program seeks to enrich the lives of our residents and help them reach their full potential. The MBKonnection calendar is created with the latest senior care research and trainings available. We then fold in the passions, interests, and hobbies of our residents to create a calendar of events that engages and inspires. Dedicated to the pillars of the MBKonnection philosophy, we believe that:
- We are here to establish relationship-based care, which means creating positive relationships where we know our residents not just as people but as individuals.
- We are here to help our residents on their journey to emotional and physical wellness.
- We are to be mindful and present so our residents can experience pure joy in life with meaning and a sense of purpose every day.
By maintaining a sense of presence and mindfulness, we are able to help our residents fully engage and find meaning and joy in our activities, events, and outings.
The 6 Dimensions of Wellness
While we believe in the power of fun, our MBKonnection calendar of events is created with more than entertainment in mind. By appealing to both the mind and the body, we strive to help our residents establish a connection between their mental wellness and physical health. To help us achieve our goal, we adhere to the Six Dimensions of Wellness when creating our monthly events calendar. Features include:
- Accommodation of Needs – MBKonnection always offers an Accommodation of Needs so that every resident no matter their care level or cognitive ability can take part. We’ll even provide in-room programming so activities can come to you when you need it.
- Empowerment Activities – Our Empowerment Activities give residents a voice and an outlet for self-expression, whether you’d like to join our resident council or dining committee.
- Life Enrichment Programs – Life Enrichment programs engage the mind by connecting residents to the present and reminding them of the past, whether they’re interested in our Lifelong Learning ongoing education courses, or our Life Review offerings designed to stimulate recall.
