A Philosophy of Wellness

At Presbyterian Communities, we encourage residents to participate in our comprehensive wellness program. The program is constructed to integrate the Seven Dimensions of Wellness into daily choices and routines for a more productive and engaging lifestyle.

This philosophy of wholeness is woven into the efforts of promoting individual preferences and meaning. Emphasis is on providing a more enriching life experience through the power of knowledge.
