Good Health is a Way of Life

ElimPark-Health-Sodx-03-optMastering the Art of Living is a cutting edge wellness initiative that is a way of life at Elim Park Place. Working in partnership with Sodexo Senior Living, Elim Park brings a comprehensive approach to wellness designed to keep residents independent and to maximize their quality of life.

Wellness is about taking care of the mind, body and spirit. Making a conscious decision to focus on these components is the key to complete wellness.

The Wellness Model

The wellness model is a proactive approach to health and well-being. It is quite different from the medical model which is reactive. Mastering the Art of Living's comprehensive program calls for Elim Park's staff to work together to understand how the different components impact total wellness and to encourage residents to take the proactive path.

Wellness permeates all aspects of life at Elim Park. Our Fitness and Wellness Center, with its strength and cardiovascular equipment, indoor pool, exercise room and more, is a beautiful environment to improve physical wellness, but it is also a place for gathering which addresses social wellness. A variety of social opportunities are available to Elim Park residents to connect with each other and the community.


"I enjoy life at Elim Park tremendously. Living here allows me to do things I most enjoy without the worries and concerns of managing a big household, or potentially being thought of as a source of stress for my loved ones.

"I've made so many new friends here, and the people who work here are so considerate, kind and thoughtful. It's made a huge difference in my life, and I look forward to many new adventures.

-Kate C.

Addressing spiritual needs has always been a part of life at Elim Park. As a Christian community, the Center for Worship and Performing Arts fulfills those needs and incorporates other aspects of wellness. For example, the center allows Elim Park to offer a greater number and variety of programs that are intellectually, spiritually and socially stimulating. Click here to view Nelson Hall Events »
