Through the vision of Whole Life Living, GenCare is reinventing how senior living communities are operated; providing the foundation necessary to manage wellness, not illness, in older adults. By taking a “whole life” approach to aging, residents can influence their health, strength, stamina, and their longevity.
Delicious, healthy food is the foundation of wellness. After consultation with Bastyr University, a renowned natural health sciences university, and achieving gluten-free certification through GIG’s GFFS program, GenCare improved its culinary services to include fresh, locally grown, in-season foods and healthier preparation methods. The goal is to provide wholesome foods that are not laden with calories, preservatives and carbohydrates. What goes into the body influences how one feels. Good food can help reduce blood pressure, reduce evidence of cancer, increase energy, improve overall health and increase blood flow to the brain.
Notably, GenCare is the only company in the country offering a whole organic culinary program for its residents. Whole Life DiningTN earned GenCare the 2008 ICAA Innovators Award, presented by the International Council for Active Aging, to honor excellence and creativity in health and wellness, and recognize organizations that have created cutting edge offerings for active aging.
