wellness at wesley village resized 600Kudos to the staff at Bishop Wicke Health Center, Crosby Common Assisted Living and Wesley Heights Independent and Assisted Living communities for maintaining their new year’s resolution all the way into June!  We are happy to share that as part of our wellness initiative, a core group of 19 staff have shed a total of 281.2 pounds in the last 12 weeks.

Weight Watchers groups were held on the Wesley Village campus over the last 12 weeks and this group of staff took part in weekly classes here, at neighboring sites and even online.  Having access to the beautiful walking paths on the Wesley Village campus helped motivate staff to walk before and after work, and during break times.  Many staff now take the few extra minutes to walk the distances between buildings for meetings (instead of hopping in their car), or grab one of the retro pink or turquoise bikes to commute between the communities.

Next up is round two of Weight Watchers!  After 12 weeks, the change in eating habits and lifestyle have begun to take hold.  Many participants of the first group plan to take part and many new employees are inspired to join.  Congratulations to all who participated! Your dedication to a “Healthier You” serves as an inspiration to us all.

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.
