Spirituality is a deeply personal matter, something that is not a one-size-fits-all process. While achieving spiritual wellness means something different to each individual, it generally involves finding a connection to something bigger than oneself and a deep investigation into one’s personal meaning. There is a goal to find a clear purpose in life and act in accordance with that motive.
At Crestwood Manor, our holistic wellness program touches on all seven dimensions of wellness –including spiritual wellness. We believe that finding your purpose and exploring your values not only allows you to get through difficult moments in your life, but helps you achieve the best version of “you” that you can be.
There are a variety of things you can do to embrace your spiritual wellness. A few examples include:
At Crestwood Manor, we encourage spiritual wellness through a variety of offerings. Springpoint Foundation’s Spiritual Care Program offers emotional and spiritual support to residents in our communities, including at Crestwood, under the guidance of chaplains. Since no person’s spiritually is the same, our chaplain offers not only traditional religious ceremonies and services, but non-denominational discussion groups, learning opportunities, devotions, meditation and more. Resident Emory Turnureappreciateshow approachable the chaplain is and shares, “I support the Spiritual Care Program because I think it is essential to have someone available in the community who everyone can talk to.”
And, along with this program, our complimentary shuttle service makes sure you get where you need to go. On Sundays, we make the trip to five area churches; Whiting Bible Church, Church of Saint Elizabeth, Community Reformed Church, Ocean County Evangelical Free Church and Whiting United Methodist Church. No matter your religious affiliation, there is an opportunity for you to worship. Contact us today for more information or to schedule a tour to see the community for yourself.
