Vitalize 360

The Vitalize 360 at Kendal-Crosslands Communities combines an innovative, person-directed approach to wellness coaching with the power of information derived from a scientifically-grounded assessment system.  The program engages, challenges, and inspires our residents to live full, healthy, vibrant lives and enables our progressive retirement community to demonstrate significant improvement in successful aging.

A Commitment to Improve Healthy Aging

At Kendal~Crosslands Communities, we know the interests, preferences, wellness, and challenges of our residents. And, we’re committed to improving their vitality.

Vitalize 360 increases the quality and depth of engagement between staff and residents. We target the right programs and resources to support improved well-being and successful aging. Kendal~Crosslands offers this program under the direction of our Wellness Coach.

Reflective, Person-centered Coaching

Vitalize 360 focuses on “what matters most,” not on “what’s the matter.” Residents meet with our Vitalize 360 coach to set goals, share what’s most important to them, and practice focusing on living more intentionally.  The coach supports residents as they progress through stages of activation toward living their best lives.

Real Goals From Our Residents 

“I want to be a better listener.” 

“I want to swim four laps, three times a week.” 

“I want to skydive before I’m 80.”

“I want to dance at my granddaughter’s wedding”

Creating a Vitality Plan

Residents work with their staff coach to create a personalized Vitality Plan. It’s a well-being roadmap that guides the achievement of self-identified goals, supports existing activities, and inspires new achievements. 

The plan starts with two evidence-based assessments. First, the self-administered Lifestyle Survey captures the resident’s preferences and satisfaction with current activities.  Then, the Health and Social Check-up covers health, community, and social life, cognition and mental health, and getting around in everyday life.

Meet Lathie, Vitalize 360 Coach

Vitalize is a wellness platform that offers you the opportunity to meet with me informally and share what matters most to you. Maybe you have a goal you are not quite sure how to achieve. I am here to walk with you, side-by-side, and determine how to get you there. It is a journey we take together, both of us learning along the way. Your goals can be ANYTHING! Residents have goals such as better sleep, organization, de-clutter, preparing for a grandchild’s wedding, or being able to enjoy the hobbies they love (such as time to paint, or writing, or…..  you name it). I’m here to get you back into your life!
