Senior Resource Group LLC (SRG), which develops, owns, and operates luxury senior living communities across seven states, is pleased to announce three of their communities have earned the prestigious Beacon Award for “Best in Wellness” from the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA) and NuStep, LLC. The award showcases organizations that embrace wellness as a way of life for all residents and staff and recognizes their outstanding commitment, creativity and culture.
SRG’s Maravilla in Santa Barbara, Calif., Maravilla Scottsdale in Arizona and The Village at NorthRidge in California were named among the top 25 communities across the nation.
According to a statement by ICAA, “wellness encompasses seven key dimensions – emotional, physical, intellectual, social, spiritual, vocational and environmental – that, when cultivated, can collectively enrich wellbeing, quality of life, overall health and longevity.”
Collin Milner, ICAA founder and CEO, said: “Aging well involves more than simply programs and special events, but requires an intentional, ongoing pursuit of potential and possibilities. We’re pleased to recognize senior living communities that excel at fostering a mindset and environment that emphasizes promise and opportunities.”
At SRG senior living communities, wellness is incorporated into the company’s signature Zest initiative, which offers a proactive, holistic approach to wellbeing built upon personal enjoyment and new experiences that focus on three fundamental areas of ourselves: mind, body and soul. Launched in 2018, the evidence-based initiative seeks to measure and improve residents’ quality of life, thus creating a more active, engaged and healthy lifestyle. Zest focuses on positive ways for residents to feel their best—from social engagement and physical activities to diet and nutrition.
“We’re honored to be recognized by ICAA and NuStep and ‘stand out as a guiding light for all senior communities,’” said SRG CEO Michael Grust. “The Beacon Award is a testament to our communities’ commitment and dedication focusing on the concept of healthspan, where residents lead better, healthier lives.”
