With themes ranging from heart health to beating the heat, Clinton House Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, the skilled nursing facility here, is launching “A Year of Wellness” to encourage healthy living and productive activity among residents and staff.

Kicking off the year with “Healthy Resolutions," the theme for January, Clinton House canvassed residents and staff, asking them to list some of their own New Year's resolutions. Answers covered a wide range of future ambitions, including:

  • Eat healthier
  • De-stress by spending time in nature
  • Be a better me

“We are providing programs that present these topics in a fun and engaging way, to be effective in raising the health consciousness of residents and staff,” said Tracy Wells, administrator of Clinton House. “By involving everyone in this educational effort, we will be sure to capture their imagination and drive the lessons home more successfully than a single lecture.”

Clinton House has already captured the spirit of the initiative, celebrating the year-opening Health Resolutions theme by celebrating National Popcorn Day and holding a Farmers Market with fresh fruit and vegetables.

The skilled nursing facility is working through a new set of creative programs for February's theme, Heart Health month. This month's initiatives will focus on educating residents and staff about activities and diets that will help protect cardiovascular health.

Future months will address themes ranging from stress management to stroke prevention to making good memories.
