Wellness and Resident Enrichment

MBKonnection at The Wellington

A major part of the MBK philosophy is that a strong body supports a strong mind. MBKonnection provides a pathway for supporting all the elements of wellness in our residents. A quick look at our monthly calendar shows a diverse and inviting menu of fitness classes, creative opportunities, social gatherings, and spiritually enriching events. Activities reflect the specific interests and passions of our residents, as well as current research and continual training from the Home Office. There’s no aimless busywork here. Every opportunity is designed to optimize physical fitness, deepen understanding, open new doors, and bring the fun. The calendar echoes the following pillars of the MBKonnection philosophy:

  • 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 that our residents can experience pure joy in life with meaning and a sense of purpose every day.

As a team, it is our goal to stay attentive so that residents have what they need to live their days to the fullest, in ways that are most meaningful for them.
