Lakeview Village secures prestigious ICAA NuStep Beacon Award for 'Best in Wellness' in 2023
Lakeview Village in Lenexa is proud to announce that it has been awarded the 2023 ICAA NuStep Beacon Award, solidifying its position among the Top 25 ‘Best in Wellness’ senior living communities in North America. This prestigious recognition is a testament to Lakeview Village’s commitment to fostering a wellness-centered community that benefits all residents and staff.
The ICAA NuStep Beacon Award, a joint initiative between the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) an organization at the forefront of leading, connecting, and defining the active-aging industry, and NuStep, LLC, a prominent manufacturer of recumbent cross-trainers widely used in healthcare, senior living, and fitness.
CEO and founder of the ICAA, Colin Milner, emphasizes the evolving importance of wellness in senior living communities. Milner states, “Wellness has evolved from being a programming option to becoming a way of life.” According to a 2023 ICAA survey, 61% of senior living communities aim to have a wellness-centered business model with care services in the next 5 years.
Lakeview Village has played a crucial role in this evolution, partnering with residents and staff to create meaningful opportunities that inspire participants to enhance their quality of life. Wellness, as acknowledged by this award, is derived from our ability to understand, accept, and act upon our capacity to lead a purpose-filled and engaged life. In doing so, we can embrace our potential (physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social, environmental, vocational) to pursue and optimize life’s possibilities.
“Both the residents and staff are excited about this award. We work as a team to continually evaluate the wellness needs of our community and monitor the quality of what we offer to meet the seven dimension of wellness”, says Lakeview Village Community Life Director, Jackie Halbin.
