Health + Wellbeing
Be Happy. Be Healthy.
Be Happy. Be Healthy.
Our comprehensive wellness program is designed with everyone in mind, with a goal of enhancing and maintaining health, well-being, and independence no matter what your capabilities.
We believe well-being means mind, body, and spirit. Our programs aim to nurture the whole person, with physical fitness spaces and classes, salon and spa, and religious and spiritual communities.
We also contract with independent specialists to provide additional services, from massage to special fitness classes, medication management, and ancillary services.
In addition to a beautifully equipped gym, dance and exercise studios, saline pool and hot tub, we have a wellness team that teaches dozens of fitness classes weekly, personal training, and the ever-popular resident walks and talks. We also love to bring in talented, certified instructors to expand the variety of classes offered—from aerobics to gentle yoga.
Inner Wellbeing & Spirituality
Spiritual well-being is a key element in happiness and health. While Horizon House was founded by members of the United Church of Christ, we are nondenominational. Our Inner Wellbeing & Spirituality and adjunct staff are available to all residents and their families for support, counseling, education, and worship services.
We believe connections to spiritual communities are an important component for the well-being of our residents which is why we host a variety of faith services onsite. In addition, vans are available to transport residents to Plymouth Congregational Church and St. James Cathedral on Sundays. A private, interfaith meditation room is always open to residents, families, and staff.
Health Care Services
Horizon House is committed to the continuum of health care and wellness for all residents. We partner with outside specialists including, audiologists, podiatrists, and rehabilitation services for further care.
Our highly skilled Care Connector is a professional dedicated to the support of independent residents who may be experiencing decline in physical and/or cognitive abilities. The Care Connector also addresses partners who are serving as primary caregivers and provides programs—such as the Memory Café—that support inclusion for those experiencing memory loss.
A nurse is available 24/7 for medical emergencies and is dispatched when a resident contacts our reception desk or activates their pendant or pull cord.
