Inspire Wellness for Life

All of our residents are unique in their own ways. We encourage them to embrace their individuality and what makes them who they are. Inspire Wellness for Life is a program designed to help our community members maintain a positive quality of life. The program is based around the 7 Dimensions of Wellness, our guiding principles that act as the foundation for everything we do at Mill City Senior Living.

Our guiding principles are:

  • Physical: Choosing to live a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Spiritual: Living with meaning and purpose
  • Social: Interacting daily with others
  • Emotional: Awareness and acceptance of feelings
  • Intellectual: Engaging in creative pursuits
  • Vocational: Expressing yourself through talents and passion
  • Environmental: Respecting and caring for our surroundings

Inspire Wellness for Life helps enrich our residents’ daily lives to improve cognition, reduce pain and falls, and diminish depression symptoms in a uniquely beneficial way.

Medication Management

Medication can cause a myriad of issues for residents without proper supervision and administration. Errors and overuse can lead to dependency or other significant problems, so we work with TotalCare Pharmacy to ensure each medication plan receives thorough, quality review.

It’s important that our community members have access to customized medication benefits tailored to their specific needs. At Mill City, we aim for our residents to be comfortable, happy, and above all, healthy.

Therapeutic Options

Residents who have suffered illnesses or injuries may have lost essential motor functions that allow them to move around and communicate.

Physical therapy helps our residents regain strength lost due to an injury or illness. Our team focuses on helping them heal and retrain their bodies while always working at a comfortable pace.

Occupational therapy focuses on helping residents regain their independence. We create accessible ways to approach daily activities when they begin to become challenging. By finding effective alternatives, we help our residents avoid falls and injuries so they can do more for themselves.

Speech therapy helps residents who have had a stroke, injury, or illness that has made communicating difficult and frustrating. Our speech therapists help our residents find their voices through vocal exercises that train them to use the right muscles to formulate sounds naturally. We can also help alleviate issues related to swallowing through speech therapy.
