International Council on Active Aging Awards Holland Home’s Vibrant Living Model
Each year, Holland Home observes Active Aging Week, which celebrates aging and the benefits of active living at any age. Put on by Humana and the International Council on Active Aging, this week also showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and recognizes the models that are leading the way in changing how we age.
Vibrant Living, Holland Home’s wellness model, has received the “Spirit Award” for the third time, recognizing their event planning efforts during Active Aging Week 2022. Events included a variety show for the community to showcase their passions and abilities, a shuffleboard tournament, a wine cork art class, and some friendly games of pool volleyball, basketball, and a special Family Feud-like competition. A resident musician also played the organ during a special chapel service while another resident photographer captured photos.
Each day, but especially so during theme weeks, Holland Home strives to implement events across all levels of care that meet the residents where they are at, bring everyone together as one vibrant community, and redefine what aging and senior living can look like.
Residents felt a sense of purpose in giving back to the community by participating in a trash pickup to clean up our neighborhoods. Local organizations like John Ball Zoo and Blandford Nature Center joined in the celebrations by offering engaging presentations with animals. Festivities were capped off with a neighborhood block party where residents could socialize and make new and lasting connections.
