2023 Reflection on Word of the Year: Resilience

Category: Senior Living

Author: Joanna Wesley, Executive Director

As we wrap up 2023, we reflect on months past and what lies ahead with our community’s journey. 

If you recall, our Personal and Professional Development Coach, Michael “Buck” Buckley. Challenged us to pick a “Word of the Year” in January 2023. Buck asked us to look inward and consider what we need more of or what might improve our lives. The time has come to revisit our Word of the Year for 2023. To explore its impact on The Wellington Senior Living. Whether you’ve been an active member or are just joining us, this retrospective journey invites us all to celebrate the past year.

Our community Word of the Year for 2023 was ‘resilience.’ We achieved many successes throughout the year, living in line with our word and improving the community.

I believe our team experienced success in being resilient. Our resiliency was tested as we experienced changes in leadership positions, the loss of beloved residents, and nationwide staffing challenges. Through it all, we came together, offering compassionate care for each other and our residents.

Residents were equally resilient and displayed incredible patience and grace during the many storms of nature that came through Liberty and disrupted daily routines, including a lightning strike on the community! 

The Wellington welcomed many new residents to our community in 2023. Everyone worked together to make each new resident feel loved and welcome. New residents showed resiliency in learning about their new surroundings and adjusting to a community-living lifestyle.

The entire Wellington community lived out our word of resiliency.

We look forward to our continued growth as a community and team. Many feel the staff and residents are an extension of their own families because of the time we all spend together, and we all look forward to the growth of these relationships. 

As we bid farewell to 2023, we will carry forward the essence of our Word of the Year into 2024. The successes and strides of our community, the embodiment of our chosen word in our collective actions, are not just markers in time but a testament to the strength of this community.

I look forward to catching our 2024 Word of the Year blog soon!
