2023 Reflection on Words of the Year: Unity and Cohesiveness

Category: Senior Living

Author: Lisa Ford, 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 and explore its impact on Vitalia Solon. 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(s) of the Year for 2023 was ‘unity and cohesiveness.’ We achieved many successes throughout the year, living in line with our word and improving the community. 

The goal was to unite a team. We recruited many new team members who are now part of a cohesive team. We have focused on creating a culture of growth, unity, and high-value customer service in our community.

I believe we lived out the word. We needed to make changes to show growth. This team has encountered so many changes. With discussions and meetings, we now share common goals with everyone on board! We have had deficiency-free surveys, census growth, and much-improved staff retention scores. In 2024, I look forward to continued growth, stabilization, and joy with the team and residents. 

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!
