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 and explore its impact on Vitalia Mentor. 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 ‘experience.’ When we opened our doors in the late fall of 2023, we focused on creating an amazing experience for our new residents and families. We wanted them to enjoy a warm welcome from the time they visited, toured, deposited, and ultimately moved in and made our community their home.
I believe we lived out the word. Opening Vitalia Mentor was the highlight of our year. We enjoyed seeing our team and community rally around the opening and begin to create a culture for our employees and residents. Our focus on creating a fantastic experience for our residents has been a success. In our early phases of being a new community, and we look forward to carrying the momentum into 2024.
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!
