there's a different feel here you walk into Phoebe and you have a totally different feel the staff the residents it's like a family it's a family atmosphere we could we go that extra mile Phoebe does that whatever it takes you know to make them feel at home and feel comfortable that's what we do the emphasis here is on wholeness wellness prevention we have a wellness program for mental growth and maintenance we have a gym and that's part of it to be able to stay physically well our meals are marked with little pineapples to show us what's the healthful thing to eat and then the spiritual aspect of it of feeling close and feeling like a family and having activities that are aimed at our spiritual growth it's really the holistic aspect of what we do here and I think that's really embodied in our wellness program and we decided to take an entirely different stance on wellness and looking at the whole person that's physical mental psychosocial and spiritual well-being of the residents that live here I think the other thing is that residents are really like family toward each other I don't know how it is other places but I know that when someone's ill people in their hallway make meals they'll check in on them regularly it's really like family and I think that's a very very special kind of relationship that people established with each other here we've heard that from various people that the reason that they're living so long is because they're here and the atmosphere the care and this their surroundings with the people and that's that's the main thing here that the people not only the residents but the staff well how Brantly they are and it just is just great there's nothing else like it the sense of community and the way residents reach out to one another there's always somebody who understands sometimes its staff sometimes its volunteers sometimes its residents we come together you know as a team it's a wonderful gift that we have been able to share Phoebe demands a lot from its employees and what I've discovered is it's those who are really committed to the religious values to the mission that really hang in there and become long-term staff I think what I've learned is that all of our residents are unique and unrepeatable miracles of God each one has their own unique story each one has their own unique experience in life and each one has gleaned incredible wisdom that we ought to pay attention to I just think this is a fantastic community and I think that's where it begins and ends community where people are in a relationship with each other of mutual respect and care and concern and compassion and kindness and generosity it's fun if it's fun to live here thing that people are impressed was when they come to visit it's everybody's this alone and that's true we all care about each other we have a wonderful life here FEV means for me you know it's love is hope with strength and I would think the place where you can have security or you feel you belong
