Vibrant Living

Thriving Through Vibrant Living

At Holland Home, serving others goes beyond providing a continuum of care. It involves creating an environment to help you thrive — Spiritually, Intellectually, Emotionally, Socially, and Physically.

Our Vibrant Living model addresses all these dimensions and puts extra emphasis on the spiritual component, which we consider its foundation.

Key Points on Vibrant Living

We see Vibrant Living as the union between faith and fitness, believing that both are equally important in the quality of life of our residents. That is why Vibrant Living is…

Faith Based, which includes a commitment to the Creation Story, CREATION Health Model and the Holland Home Mission.

Values Research on Healthy Aging, which proves that how well one ages is directly impacted by lifestyle choices. As a result, Holland Home strives to provide a healthy environment to encourage positive lifestyle choices. 

 Components of Vibrant Living

The Vibrant Living model exists to help residents engage with others in the community and improve their quality of life through the following opportunities:

Spiritual Fulfillment

As the core of our Vibrant Living model, Spiritual Fulfillment provides a faith-based thread that connects all that we offer. Through this component, we provide a variety of opportunities to meet and enhance each resident’s spiritual needs. Spiritual fulfillment is unique to every individual and it is our goal to provide an environment rich with meaningful experiences.

Weekly chapel services at the Breton Woods and Raybrook on-site chapels, choir practice, regular Bible studies, as well as other opportunities to gather, worship and celebrate His word.

Social Engagement

The opportunity to participate in or maintain a support network, make new connections and maintain good communication. Being engaged in this vibrant environment provides residents and staff members the chance to contribute their skills and talents for the good of the community.

At each community, you can take advantage of frequent excursions and outings to area and state attractions, volunteering opportunities, community social gatherings and organized events.

Physical Wellness

There is strong evidence that regular physical activity produces major benefits in older adults and contributes to successful aging: less fatigue throughout the day, improved balance, a reduced risk of falling, heart disease, stroke, cancer and memory loss.

An active lifestyle is encouraged in all our communities and we have resources to support it, including exercise classes at the wellness centers, yoga and other activities.

Intellectual Discovery

Helps residents grow mentally, maintain an open mind, learn and teach skills, and expand and challenge themselves. Our culture of discovery provides lifelong learning opportunities and experiences to keep residents intellectually active and engaged.

A range of intellectually stimulating events and activities, such as book clubs, monthly lectures and seminars, anti-aging mental games and more.

Emotional Well-Being

Together, staff and residents help maintain a positive culture that inspires optimism while providing encouragement and support for those who may be either struggling with difficult situations or celebrating personal success.

Specialized Programs

These programs were developed specifically to help all Holland Home residents successfully engage in Vibrant Living.

PATH

Our annual Performance and Ability Testing for Health (P.A.T.H.) helps monitor, evaluate and detect various areas (strength, gait, flexibility, balance) of a resident’s physical activity and exercise levels. A personalized feedback report is provided to paint a picture of the participant’s physical wellness on an annual basis.

 

REAL

Our Resident Enrichment Academy for Living (R.E.A.L) is an award-winning life-long learning model that provides a platform for residents and staff to showcase their passions, skills and talents to the Holland Home community.

We thought we would have a lot of free time, which we could if we wanted to, but there’s so much to do here. We said it’s like being a kid again and having fun.
