The Golden Path to Well Being
At Holy Cross Village at ND we are fortunate to have a vibrant wellness program unique to us. Entitled “HCV Health: The Golden Path to Wellbeing” our model is based off the seven dimensions of well-being. Our programs are designed to offer a well-rounded approach guided by resident input. We label each of our events with the dimension of health it aligns with, which allows residents to quickly decide which component of wellness they would like to focus on.
Importance of Nourishment
Growing Your Mind, Body, & Soul
We recognize that as you age, you can still grow, and we empower residents with learning opportunities, cultural enrichment, vibrant fitness classes, volunteer offerings, and more. We employee two priests who offer twice daily mass. Residents lead monthly lecture series, book clubs, and card games. If you are looking to work together in community with others, visit our campus Unity Garden and bee hives. Much of our produce goes to support the St. Augustine Soup Kitchen, where many of our residents volunteer their time. What doesn’t go to the Soup Kitchen, our culinary team uses for dinner— ‘farm’ to table!
For activities just outside your door, you can join a variety of clubs or attend presentations and special meetings planned throughout the month.
Make Life Enrichment Part of Your Day
Our Life Enrichment Department plans months ahead to incorporate a variety of activities and outings. From in-house presentations to a trip to Chicago, there is sure to be something of interest to participate in. Once a month a meeting is scheduled for residents to give input and suggestions for upcoming events. Most outings consist of ordering your own ticket and reserving your spot on the bus. For broader outings we are able to secure group tickets, make meal reservations and develop an itinerary for the day. No need to worry about finding a parking space anymore to attend your favorite show. Our door-to-door bus service offers this convenience.
