Every year Arrow’s personal and professional development coach, Michael Buckley, asks everyone to pick a “Word of the Year.” The goal is to look inward and consider what we each need more of and what might improve our lives. Sometimes we need more focus or clarity. Sometimes we need more compassion. Sometimes we just need more fun!
Picking a word for both me and my community is a commitment to doing work on yourself and the “we” and “us” work we want to do as a community.
Looking back on 2022, I am pleased to say our memory care neighborhood is now at capacity and we filled all our department head positions.
Now, looking forward to 2023, what Vitalia Active Adult Community – Solon needs is unity. We are large and strong, and if we all work together for one goal, we will be unstoppable. We, as a team, are going to learn about our staff, our residents, and other departments. We want to support each other and realize issues are not just within our silo. It is all about being present and coming up with solutions as a unit.
As for myself, I have chosen the word present for 2023. I want to stay in the moment to take in all the joy around me, listen more, hear more, and learn more.
What is YOUR WORD? I hope you will pick one too. What does your life need a little more of in 2023? What does “future you” thank you for working on now? Our words are meant to inspire us. If it is not inspiring, it’s not the right word.
And if you are reading this, please hold us accountable. When you visit Vitalia Active Adult Community – Solon or come to town hall, ask us what our word of the year is and what have we done to support it.
Please look forward to the December 2023 blog where we tell you all the ways we lived in line with our word of the year and all the ways it helped improve our community.

May 21st is National Waitstaff Appreciation Day. The difference between an okay dining experience and one that is truly remarkable lies in the hands of your waiter or waitress. They are the unsung heroes in our restaurants, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to operate at the level you’ve come to expect. National Waitstaff Appreciation Day was created by Fred Sirieix. He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, […]

It is only natural that we experience both stress and anxiety in some form at some level. Stress is defined as any demand placed on your brain or physical body, while anxiety is specified as […]
