Pathways to Wellness

What is “wellness?” A healthy lifestyle leaves a person fit, energetic and at reduced risk for disease. Good nutrition, daily exercise and adequate sleep are essentials for good health. Managing stress in positive ways, keeping your mind active – these components define wellness, but there are more!

Cedarfield residents have been working with staff, offering suggestions and ideas to develop the existing wellness program. While effective, everyone agreed it was time to expand it. The Pathways to Wellness initiative was introduced, which now includes nine components – Strength and Endurance, Creative Expression, Intellectual Growth, Spirituality, Emotional Balance, Community Outreach, Dining/Diet and Nutrition, Social Connections and Brain Fitness. Staff plan programming to be equally balanced, supporting all components for a healthy lifestyle!

Cedarfield's Special Care Center

Caring for a loved one with an advanced dementia disease (such as Alzheimer's) can be overwhelming to families and friends. Statistically, a person with Alzheimer's disease will live an average of eight years and as many as 20 or more years from the onset of symptoms. Eventually, 24-hour personal care may be required, whether in the private home or in a community.

Cedarfield's Special Care Center is a very unique place, designed and created as a safe and nurturing home for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia. Each of the 23 private rooms include a spacious full bath and scenic view. Family photos, keepsakes and furnishings help to provide a personal retreat for every person who calls Special Care home.

Cedarfield currently has limited availability in the Special Care Center. If you, or if you know someone facing challenges caring for a loved one, perhaps we can help. Please contact Cedarfield Marketing at (804) 968-5520 for more information.
