Health and Wellness Programming
Aging in place requires thoughtful and deliberate practices. Together with the Victory Centre of Galewood team, residents are finding a whole new way to grow healthily and age happily. Our award-winning VIVA! programs foster purpose and offer a wealth of opportunities to enrich lives through social, educational and spiritual pursuits.
From a safe distance, residents have the option to engage in active programming on a daily basis. Between doorway Zumba classes and virtual laughter yoga sessions, staying mentally, spiritually and physically fit is easy and fun and adds another dimension of staying connected. Embracing nature and sunshine greatly improves mood and overall wellbeing. Our courtyard offers fresh air and regular exercise to residents. Walking, gardening and safely socializing is encouraged and enjoyed.
Engaging residents through our award-winning programs is essential to emotional and spiritual health. A sense of community and togetherness allows residents to not just feel connected, but be connected. A connection to the community, to neighbors, to family and to yourself all play a role in finding purpose and fulfillment.
VIVA!’s comprehensive and coordinated care model focuses on well care, rather than sick care. We encourage residents to adopt healthier lifestyles and in turn, actually prevent or postpone many age-related and chronic conditions that lead to unnecessary complications and hospitalizations. It’s called VIVA! Plus and it complements the VIVA! lifestyle by bringing together an impressive group of third-party health care providers to offer residents access to high-quality, coordinated medical and behavioral care options — all conveniently delivered in the privacy and comfort of their own homes.
VIVA! Plus provides truly integrated, resident-centered care and helps residents live well to recover more quickly and improve overall agility and acuity.
Partnering physicians, pharmacists, home health nurses, physical rehabilitation therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses and hospice specialists all serve as an extension of the Victory Centre of Galewood team. All providers are carefully selected for quality and share in our holistic VIVA! Philosophy. Together, we provide you or your loved one with coordinated and seamless care.
Partner Services include: Weight Monitoring, Blood Pressure Checks, Nurse Consultations, Medication Management
