Wellness Drives North Hill Construction Project

by Published On: Sep 11, 2012


North Hill retirement community, a LeadingAge member in Massachusetts, is in the midst of a major construction project. Once completed, the project will substantially expand the continuing care retirement community campus by adding more residences, a new wellness and fitness area, additional dining venues, and more places to participate in hobbies and lifelong learning. 

As Kevin Burke, president and CEO of North Hill explains, “The design and function of the community was based on our wellness model, basically what we are saying is that wellness isn’t just fitness and nutrition.”

PurposeFULL living, North Hill’s wellness model, emphasizes engagement in all aspects of life. The holistic approach includes environmental, physical, social, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, cultural and occupational wellness. And the True North project is striving to infuse this philosophy into the design.
