Galloway Ridge is pleased to announce the 2013 Wellness Olympics, September 22-28.

All residents are encouraged to participate with their designated team in this friendly competition. The fun-filled week will include new activities, programs and contests designed for all levels of ability and interests – from Bird Watching to Square Dancing to Speed Friending and Aqua Scrabble…there will be something for everyone to enjoy! 2013 Wellness Olympic program booklets, outlining the complete week of events, will be available and team captains will assist in planning your day so you can “go for the Gold” and make your team and country proud!

The Olympics are just the beginning!

The Wellness Olympics will serve to kick-off our new Resident Wellness program. The program is based on the eight dimensions of wellness – Social, Intellectual, Emotional, Vocational, Health Services, Physical, Environmental and Spiritual – and is designed to encourage and reward participants as they journey toward personal wellness.
To participate, residents will be directed to complete a Wellness Screening during Olympic week. At these screenings, participants will receive program information including a Wellness Passport to track activities throughout the inaugural six months of the program.

Starting in October, all activities and program offered through the Life Enrichment department and DCFL will be categorized into the eight dimensions of wellness. Program participants will be encouraged to track their activities using their Passports in order to accomplish the program goals. And along the way, there will be fun incentives and awards!

So, let the games – and the fun – begin!
