When the charge is to help reposition a community so that it is “state-of-the future” and ahead of the curve in creating a lifestyle that embraces total well-being of its residents, the approach has to be anything but ordinary. While master planning the major repositioning of Friendship Village of Schaumburg, the goal was to carve a niche in which residents can age in place, surrounded by a holistic approach to wellness – an approach that includes not only the physical fitness dimension of wellness, but incorporates the social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational aspects of wellness too.

Inspired, rather than discouraged, an initiative to create the first-ever research study that tracked wellness in senior living communities was formed.
