Empowering you to keep your body healthy.Wellness

It is the philosophy of The Chesapeake to enhance the lives of all by providing wellness programs that encourage and develop a balance of the mind, body and spirit.

Wellness programs focus on prevention of health risks such as falls, illness, and isolation in all dimensions of wellness. The goal of the Wellness department is to provide and maintain continued enhancement of quality of life during all stages of life.

We offer integration of the six dimensions of wellness in our programs which include physical, social, emotional, spiritual, vocational and intellectual. Our residents experience programs with safe progression and shared understanding throughout the community.  Residents have the opportunity to develop and grow in these dimensions of wellness in an encouraging and supportive environment.
