The Seven Dimensions Of The Wellness Model
Our seven dimensions of wellness model is consistent with current research findings and Coventry’s belief that well-being as people age is affected by much more than their physical health. Key contributors to well-being also include the social, emotional, intellectual, vocational, spiritual, and environmental dimensions of an individual’s life. All work with policyholders is rooted in this holistic approach.
The Dimensions of Wellness
Maximizing your functional fitness and physical capacities
Engaging your brain with lifelong learning, experiences, and activities
Building and maintaining social networks, giving and receiving support
Being able to express and manage your feelings, coping with challenges
Creating a home ready for aging in place
Having a sense of purpose and contributing using your skills and talents, in the broad sense of work
Nourishing your soul and your spiritual practices
* The seven dimensions of wellness model is based upon the work of Bill Hettler, MD, at the National Wellness Institute and the International Counsel of Active Aging. The Coventry Service Program was designed in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Division of Geriatrics.
