Optimum Life® Enhances Key Dimensions of Wellness

Retirement living definitely isn’t what it used to be. In fact, at senior living communities owned or operated by Brookdale Senior Living® it’s much more, thanks to the company’s Optimum Life® initiative.

By balancing six key dimensions of wellness – purposeful, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual – Optimum Life helps Brookdale residents live within a lifestyle that promotes health, wholeness and fulfillment. Intended as a journey of self-examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to pursue their peak level of health, regardless of their real or perceived limitations.

The concept is grounded in the belief that no two people are identical in either the rate or capacity at which they age. Indeed, age is both a tangible measurement and an intangible perception that may be influenced by a number of factors.

Not everyone has the same interests, capabilities or limitations. Where one person is more intellectually oriented, another may demonstrate a greater sense of purpose; and where one has physical limitations at age 72, another may be running five miles a day at age 81. However, both can live optimally within their respective capacities.

Optimum Life is embodied in a number of events and activities, the most prominent being Celebrations!

Celebrations! blends inspired dining and vibrant lifestyle activities together by filling the monthly calendar with themed experiences, special events and group activities that spotlight different cultures and cuisines. It’s a program that brings residents together with exquisite flavors and well-conceived activities.
