Congratulations to our Sunnyside Wellness Program for winning the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) Innovator Award for the 4th time! This year Sunnyside won for our Wellness Scout Program. Residents and employees participated by completing and recording five non-repeating activities for each of the seven different Dimensions of Wellness Badges to then earn those badges.
The ICAA Industry Innovators Awards program honors excellence and creativity in the health and wellness field. By recognizing organizations that have created cutting-edge wellness programs, the ICAA highlights these innovative solutions for industry leaders and governmental organizations to learn from.
Recipients of The ICAA Industry Innovators Awards work on inspiring, new directions in older adult wellness. These award winners not only give us a glimpse into the trends shaping the futures of older adult health and wellness, they also give us hope that it is possible to solve the inactivity problem.
