Wellness care is the adoption of a lifestyle that prevents illness and disease and promotes optimal health. It is the steps taken in order to achieve maximum wellbeing in all facets of life, physical, mental, or spiritual. At Vicar’s Landing, the main priority is the wellness and happiness of our Members. Various programs, classes and activities facilitate the optimal health and wellness of those who partake.
Located on the Vicar’s Landing premises, the Wellness Clinic offers physical, occupational and speech therapies to help keep Members healthy and rehabilitate them from illness or injury. Physical therapy addresses concerns related to the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiovascular systems. Speech therapy includes treatment for cognitive issues, oral motor strengthening and the ability to speak clearly. Occupational therapy focuses on restoring function to regain and maintain independence while performing activities of daily living.
Appointments are also available within the disciplines of audiology, podiatry, dermatology, and dentistry to address any health concerns and plan for prevention. Nursing staff can provide clients with consultations, minor wound dressings, blood pressure monitoring, and education so there is no need to stray far from home for some of your medical needs. While these therapies and medical interventions are an excellent resource, prevention should be the first line of defense. Working out on a regular basis is miraculous for longevity and general health. If the benefits of exercise could be taken in pill form, not a single soul would skip that supplement. However it is often time consuming and difficult to find the motivation, so it’s important to find an exercise that you enjoy in order to stay consistent. Vicar’s Landing offers a wide variety of different ways to get your heart pumping and lungs expanding. The on-site Fitness Center offers both classes as well as training equipment like weights, treadmills and stationary bicycles. Members can take part in Tai Chi, aerobics and yoga classes. A full sized swimming pool is also available to enjoy a swim or take part in aquasize classes with a certified instructor – an excellent form of low-impact exercise.
A healthy social life is a major aspect of wellness – a strong support system, people with whom you can communicate, and friends who you see regularly can help stave off loneliness, which has dire effects on health. Classes such as those held in the Fitness Center are a great way to make social connections – people whom you see regularly and gradually get to know. Alongside fitness classes, Vicar’s Landing also has a USCA sanctioned Croquet Team for those with a competitive streak. Soak up the sunshine and get a good dose of vitamin D with games held on the pristine Village Greene area. Also held here are ongoing Bocce Ball tournaments played throughout the year. For leisure on a rainy day, our Card Room is available, another great way to socialize over a friendly game of Bridge or a competitive Hearts tournament.
At Vicar’s Landing there is ample opportunity for personal enrichment. The First-class Art Studio allows for creative expression, featuring a workshop for woodworking and stained glass, where Members can work on their own creations and display the finished product in their homes. Members also have the opportunity to reap the challenging rewards of learning a new language, with French classes. This endeavor keeps the mind active – an essential part of the maintenance of wellbeing in seniority.
Spiritual wellness is something Vicar’s Landing recognizes the necessity of – it is important that Members have a place to congregate in shared worship with likeminded people and express their faith, which they may do at the Vicar’s Landing Worship Center, catering to multiple faiths. Nutrition is also a vital component of wellness, so Vicar’s Landing offers tips for dietary planning and a healthy lifestyle at their Wellness Wednesday programs, held in the Auditorium. Sometimes, wellness is as simple as feeling fresh and looking groomed. The on-site Hair Salon for men and women will leave you looking and feeling your best as you are pampered by salon professionals.
Wellness is more than just the absence of illness or poor health, and encompasses the vast plain of human needs. Vicar’s Landing, The Retirement Resort at TPC Sawgrass strives to address every aspect of wellness with dynamic care facilities, amenities and entertainment options, promoting the health of its Members by creating an environment that nurtures the many aspects that improve their quality of life. In this way, Members are likely to thrive in a state of physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
