Healthy living is essential for everyone, especially aging individuals. As one ages it becomes increasingly necessary to take care of your health and pay attention to the food being consumed. Nutritional needs vary and some may have restricted diets. It is important to consult with physicians to stay on top of these health requirements.

With the New Year approaching, many people make resolutions to improve their health and pay attention to their diets. Healthy eating is a key to healthy living. Assisted and independent living communities offer residents a variety of ways to stay healthy; including fitness programs, nutritional and nurturing food choices, and health and wellness services.

This January, United Methodist Homes’ Wesley Village is hosting a “Healthy Eating in the New Year” event to teach older adults how to stay healthy in the coming year. The event will include a cooking demonstration and samples of tasty, healthy offerings. Recipes will be provided!

The event will be held at noon on Wednesday, January 16 at Crosby Commons at Wesley Village. 580 Long Hill Ave, Shelton, CT.

UMH understands the importance of healthy living and meal times for our residents as it is a time to bring people together. In addition to hosting community dining events, we encourage residents to share recipes and meal requests with our chefs so we can meet their particular dietary needs.

About Elizabeth Bemis

In 1998, I drove past an assisted living community construction site, learned that it was part of United Methodist Homes and realized the next stop on my professional journey was to work for a mission driven organization. Soon after, I joined the team as Executive Director of our Middlewoods of Farmington community and later served as Regional Manager for the Middlewoods properties before accepting my current role as Vice President of Marketing, Promotions, and Assisted Living Operations. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, walking, and love working alongside our staff, residents, and families to build strong communities that reflect the mission, vision, and values of United Methodist Homes.
