The 'Bella Vita' Philosophy

At Villagio Senior Living, we know that caring for our residents means caring for the whole person — mind, body, spirit, and community. By addressing all the wellness needs of our residents, we help them live la bella vita — the good life.

Bella Vita is Villagio’s approach to wellness. Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment around us.

Through this holistic approach, we strive to

· Help residents achieve their full potential

· Recognize and address the needs of the whole-person

· Affirm and mobilize people’s positive qualities and strengths.

To support this approach to wellness, every day, in every community, our team focuses on providing a Bella Vita experience. Whatever the task is, team members should ask themselves, how is what am doing now contributing the ‘good life’ for my residents. A housekeeper might leave a single flower in a vase when they prepare a resident’s room for the day. The chef might take extra care to prepare a healthy snack for between meals. A life enrichment coordinator takes a new approach to engaging that new resident. All of these are examples of everyday tasks in which a Villagio team member considers the Bella Vita philosophy to make an extraordinary difference in someone’s life.

By making these differences daily, Villagio strives to provide further physical, mental, and/or spiritual benefits which, in concert, improve overall wellness and feelings of well-being.
