As we celebrate Wellderly Week, it's important to focus on the wellness of the older adult population, especially those living in long-term care and skilled nursing facilities. The aging process comes with challenges, but with the right support and resources, seniors can maintain their independence and live fulfilling lives. The life enrichment department knows this — but it's not always easy to turn intentions into action. This is where Welbi comes in.
Welbi is a comprehensive wellness platform designed to support life enrichment teams by automating recreation planning and documentation. It is an innovative solution that promotes personalized wellness programs and resident engagement tools for seniors' well-being. We already know loneliness can be deadly — which is why robust recreation and wellness planning are key to maintaining connections, improving resident outcomes, increasing occupancy, and ultimately driving revenue.
In long-term care and skilled nursing facilities, Welbi can be an essential tool for improving quality of life for residents. Here are some ways in which Welbi can support wellness:
With Welbi, each resident has a digital profile that documents their individual needs and preferences as well as any potential health concerns. This information can then be used to create wellness programming that is suitable for those with specific health needs, such as chronic conditions, mobility issues, and cognitive impairment.
Welbi's engagement tools are designed to keep residents connected and engaged with their community. The platform recommends programs that residents are likely to want to attend based on their hobbies and interests. It also alerts life enrichment teams when a resident is at risk of isolation to ensure they remain connected with family members, friends, and staff members.
Welbi also offers tools for staff members to keep family informed about their loved ones' care. This includes access to customizable reports about which wellness programs a resident is attending so family members know their loved one is staying engaged.
Overall, Welbi can be a valuable resource for long-term care and skilled nursing facilities looking to improve the wellness of their residents. With personalized profiles, engagement tools, and family engagement features, Welbi is an all-in-one solution for supporting seniors' well-being. By prioritizing wellness, we can help seniors live fulfilling lives and age with grace.
