More about the initiative

These communities take on many different forms including destination spas, hotels and wellness retreats with residential components to master-planned communities, existing or new neighborhoods and apartment complexes where individuals may work, live and/or play. Each is linked by a foundational commitment to live well by fostering wellness-focused design and services from blue-print to hand-print, resulting in mindful, healthful programming, buildings and facilities offered on-site.

This group has been established with the goal to identify common principles, resources and best practices that will help to foster effective development and operations of wellness communities in the years ahead. 

 

Our activities (objectives/goals) include

  • To identify common principles and needs that will help to foster effective development and operations of wellness living communities in the years ahead.
  • To bring together senior stakeholders in residential wellness communities and buildings.
