Six Dimensions of Wellness Kelsey Meha loves her job. She feels she has a whole building full of loving grandparents that she gets to work with every day. Kelsey is the Wellness Assistant at Sagewood at Daybreak in South Jordan. Sagewood is an independent living, assisted living and memory care facility on a beautiful 6 acre site. Kelsey took this job because she was intrigued by the 6 dimensions of wellness that the company promoted for its residents, which involves developing wholeness in these six areas: intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, vocationally and spiritually. She was excited to help seniors be balanced and at their best, no matter their age. “We want our residents to thrive,” she said. “We want them to be happy and stimulated in a way that they are challenged.” The Sagewood staff does this by encouraging the residents to help each other. “When they are focused on others, they really benefit!” The residents at Sagewood just love having Kelsey as their Wellness Assistant. Irene, a resident there, said, “From day one, Kelsey and I have planned activities together and she works so hard- she’s great fun to be around as well!” She got married in January and wanted to include the residents, so she had one of her receptions at Sagewood. She said it was so wonderful to include them in her special day. “It’s a day I will never forget,” she said. One of Kelsey’s most satisfying days happened recently when one of the residents named Jan, who lost her leg after 13 failed surgeries, tried a new therapy encouraged by Kelsey. During her assessment with Jan, Kelsey urged her to try the swimming pool for therapy. Jan was hesitant but, “After lowering me into the pool, Kelsey helped me around for the first little bit, then I went on my own. I felt like a whole different person! I was free, light, and wonderful. I was normal for a short time and it was amazing.” For more information about Sagewood and their staff go to www.kiscoseniorliving.com.
