The Lodge and Beebe Healthcare Join Forces to Elevate Wellness in Sussex County
As the frequency of studies showing the impact on our health from lifestyle choices reaches new heights, The Lodge at Truitt Homestead and Beebe Healthcare are partnering together to provide resources to area seniors in the form of engaging and supportive workshops.
(REHOBOTH BEACH, Delaware) – On Thursday, January 30th at 1:00pm The Lodge at Truitt Homestead and Beebe Healthcare will be launching a groundbreaking wellness initiative with the first in a four-part “Resolutions & Resources: Engaged Living” workshops series. Titled “Realizing the Change”, this first workshop will be helmed by expert guest speaker Rita Stevens, Co-Owner and Vice President of Operations of Vantage Point Retirement Living. Rita will guide attendees in an interactive setting to connect the dots between resolving to change our health and fitness for the better, and actually realizing the change – with the right tools, resources and support.
Dave Bolton, Executive Director of The Lodge at Truitt Homestead and The Lodge at Historic Lewes, said “each workshop is focused on one aspect of Engaged Living – and yes that’s a health and wellness concept that has been delivered to us from gurus and influencers many times over with snappy soundbites and “formulas for success”. But without access to tangible resources…real people with names and phone numbers to be a part of your support team…there isn’t any accountability for whether those jazzy soundbites of health advice are effective, and that’s a key difference between wanting to live a healthier lifestyle and truly living healthier.”
When asked what makes the Engaged Living initiative different from other health-focused workshops, Co-Owner of Vantage Point Retirement Living Rita Stevens said “everyone says they’re the best at what they do. That they’re different than the competition, they give the best care, have the best amenities and can give you the best life…but when you start digging into the operations within the senior living industry, the reality is there isn’t much difference between the corporations, and that’s a real shame.” Rita went on to say that “Greg (President of Vantage Point) and I have decades of big-business experience in senior living, but we’re also a family-run organization, which means we have a personal accountability to each resident of The Lodge at Truitt Homestead. We can’t just tell the residents we know on a first-name basis that we’re going to give them the best life. We have to prove it to them. That’s why this initiative is so different – we designed this series specifically to be effective, to be measurable, and to appeal to our savvy senior population. Presented together with a top-notch healthcare provider like Beebe, it’s one of the ways we’re going to show, not just say, how we’re going to help you live your best life.”
This unique partnership with Beebe Healthcare allows The Lodge residents to enjoy unprecedented access to Beebe’s vast network of resources conveniently located right inside The Lodge. Onsite access to Beebe services will include:
A dedicated Health and Wellness Concierge to coordinate residents’ healthcare needs from A to Z
Primary Care Physician services staffed by Beebe Medical Group within the Wellness Suite located at The Lodge
Beebe Home Care Services
Outpatient Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies
Nurse liaison services to assist The Lodge residents in navigating Beebe’s healthcare network
Integrative and Holistic care that include multiple layers of Health, Prevention and Wellness Programs
Greg Stevens, President of Vantage Point, said “our concept of wellness extends far beyond the reaches of gym memberships and annual checkups. We go above and beyond to emphasize a holistic approach, and we do this by establishing meaningful partnerships with quality healthcare providers like our unique collaboration with Beebe, by providing advanced technology to deliver measurable results and creating a culture within The Lodge where every aspect of wellness – mind, body and spirit – is not only easily accessible, but attainable. This kind of whole-body healthcare is not just an essential part of aging – it’s an essential part of aging well. We’ve been incredibly lucky to see firsthand how committing to this approach has contributed to the success of The Lodge so far. Brand new independent living communities still in the construction phase don’t usually have the die-hard following that The Lodge does, so we know we’re doing it right…and it feels really good to be a part of that.”
The Lodge at Truitt Homestead and Beebe Healthcare are launching the Engaged Living initiative ahead of The Lodge’s planned opening in Spring 2020. This joint venture aims to equip attendees with the resources, support, and motivation to effect real change in the way we approach “lifestyle”, making a powerful impact on our health for the better.
This Engaged Living Workshop Series is Free and Open to the Public
Space is limited by design to maximize engagement.
