Cultivating Community Culture

Category: Culture & Traditions

Author: Caroline Wagner, Resident Services Director

As Resident Services Director at The Summit at Chenal Valley Senior Living, I am the energy and engagement designer of the community. My job description specifically states I am to be a “Culture Creator.” Each day, I work to set the perfect tone for our community events and resident engagements.

Providing socialization opportunities in senior living is more than just playing the beloved game of bingo. Beyond the events, essential amenities, and daily care lies the heartbeat of every community – a culture that fosters connection, purpose, and a sense of belonging.

Each monthly calendar features events tailored to the residents’ interests, focusing on key programming elements: physical, cognitive, spiritual, sensory, and social. We always celebrate major holidays in a big way, incorporating traditions from various cultures based on our residents’ backgrounds. Unique to The Summit at Chenal Valley and Arrow Senior Living, each month, we also celebrate several Arrow Traditions. These include focusing on Black History Month, Mom and Pop Small Business Day, Be Kind to Humankind Week, and so many more! 

Creating Vibrant Community Culture at The Summit Senior Living

I love contributing to our community’s culture by consistently bringing positive energy and wearing a smile. Radiating joy is a priority for me. I believe it uplifts our residents and helps foster a vibrant and engaging atmosphere.

In senior living, culture holds immense importance, primarily for enhancing the quality of life and fostering a sense of belonging. At The Summit, our upbeat and inclusive culture prioritizes fun and involvement. We ensure that every resident feels valued and can live their best life.

Every senior living community has its own culture built around the engagement and interactions of the residents. I am proud to set the stage for socialization and events for my residents as we continue building and expanding our culture at The Summit at Chenal Valley Senior Living.
