Wellness programming is developed around the six dimensions of wellness that comprise personal wellness:
Each resident who is interested in maximizing their wellness has the opportunity to participate in the Vitalize 360 program – a tool used to evaluate individual needs to tailor a wellness program just for you.
- Coordinates individual goals to create a healthy aging plan
- Records personal strategies suggested by your wellness coach
- Provides a feedback system for annual review
- Measures goals and encourages self-management of health and wellness
The same information is combined with data collected from other residents to drive wellness programming that will benefit all residents.
Staying mentally fit is an important part of the wellness philosophy. The Lifelong Learning Series is a collection of courses designed to challenge you mentally and physically and are offered on a semester basis. Many of the offerings are free, but some may have a small additional cost.
Carroll Lutheran Village has very rich spiritual offerings. As a worshiping community, one does not need to be Lutheran to participate. There is a full-time chaplain and a part-time associate chaplain to address your spiritual needs, regardless of denomination.
Krug Chapel is also a place where the community comes together in spirituality. Catholic, Jewish and other faiths worship or conduct study sessions on campus regularly, which residents are welcome to attend. You are welcome to leave the campus and worship anywhere you choose. For those who cannot, or choose not, to leave campus, an ecumenical service is offered every Sunday at 10:30 in Krug Chapel.
