Share Article

On April 4, 2017, Laura Husak from Carolina Village will discuss her team’s experience by using a creative multidimensional rehab and aquatic wellness program during a one-hour webinar supported by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) and sponsored by HydroWorx.

Competition is significant among rehabilitation and wellness facilities, including continuing care retirement communities across the country. As each one strives to carve out its unique industry niche, many are led to create comprehensive and innovative ways to strengthen their services and client outcomes.

At Carolina Village in Hendersonville, North Carolina, Life Enrichment Coordinator, Laura Husak focuses her team around a wellness program focused on eight dimensions. Her novel vision of unification across resident-led and staff-led classes and activities showcases a contemporary approach to the aging public’s growing needs. Her more holistically “balanced” method includes aquatics and other blended means of wellness to encourage participation, maximize outreach opportunities and provide effective marketing topics and opportunities.

Husak will share her organization’s realized goal of multidimensional wellness during an International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) webinar on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. E.D.T. Aptly titled “Journey to a Multidimensional Wellness Program,” the event follows the course Husak and her team took to make this new vision a reality. During the webinar, attendees will be introduced to several topics including:

  •     Understanding the importance of a program based upon eight dimensions of wellness.
  •     Anticipating and mitigating roadblocks before they occur.
  •     Engaging staff and participants to create a stronger team.
  •     Encouraging and getting senior management buy-in.
  •     Improving aquatic programming attendance to boost pool use and client outcomes.

“Journey to a Multidimensional Wellness Program” is free to attend, although online preregistration is required. The webinar is being sponsored by HydroWorx, a leading provider of aquatic therapy pools, standalone modalities and other equipment.
