"The Wellness Center is fantastic!! I find some activity that I enjoy each day, particularly the land exercises three days a week and Wave Walk on Monday's in our convenient, warm, salt water pool."
Chinkie Goodale, Resident
At The Village at Brookwood, we view wellness as more than the absence of any illness or disease. Rather wellness is a state of well-being. The whole-person wellness program at The Village at Brookwood emphasizes the areas of physical, cognitive / intellectual, nutritional, spiritual, vocational, and social/emotional health. Our on-site Wellness Coordinator personally works with all participants in the wellness program, designing a wellness program that will meet their personal and individualized goals, extending years of health and independence.
Our two affiliations serve to complement our wellness emphasis. The relationship with Elon University gives us access to many renowned speakers on a variety of topics from crisis in the Mideast to world-wide religions. University professors are invited to speaking engagements on the campus, and our residents participate in Life@Elon, a special continuing educational program for people 50 years old and above, held on the campus of Elon University (see Lifelong Learning). With sponsorship from Alamance Regional Medical Center, The Village has access to numerous speakers on everything from "How to Prevent Falls in Your Private Home" to nutritional programs on "Foods That Inhibit Disease and Promote Health."
Wellness . . . gain a feeling of overall well-being throughout the dimensions of your life!
The greatest wealth is health. - Virgil
