At Trilogy, we believe in caring for the hearts of others. Whether we’re supporting our employees as they reach their wellness goals, serving up heart-healthy meals in our dining rooms, or having a heartfelt conversation with our residents, we always try to keep in mind the needs of the heart. In support of the American Heart Association and in honor of American Heart Month, we held a contest challenging our campuses to throw a Go Red Celebration! Their efforts reminded us that our campuses are full of people with dedication, compassion, and a whole lotta heart!
Please join us in congratulating our Go Red Celebration winner:
This campus went above and beyond to show their support for AHA and Heart Month! Instead of just one day of Go Red fun, they planned an entire week of activities.
On Monday, they designed heart broaches with residents so they could proudly display them over their hearts all week to help spread awareness.
On Tuesday, Wabash encouraged local cosmetologists to visit our campus. They provided complimentary Go Red manicures to our residents, and we educated them on the importance of the National Go Red for Women campaign so that they could support the cause and help us raise awareness.
On Wednesday, local students were brought in to show residents how to share the Go Red message on social media. They worked one-on-one with anyone interested in learning different platforms using their personal phones, computers and tablets.
On Thursday, our local school system’s graphic design students created a huge banner with a red heart to share with our campus residents.
On Friday, they celebrated all through the campus. They started the day with a cardio warm up that ended in a campus-wide dance party. You can see videos of the fun on Twitter.
The campus would like to extend a special thank you to CVS Pharmacy for sponsoring our Friday Dietary event including a luncheon and recipe contest and prize! All recipes were used to form a Wellbrooke Go Red cookbook. The cookbook will help us not only eat healthy on Go Red Day but all through the year.
We would also like to acknowledge other top contenders for the prize:
Owen Valley Health Campus
At Owen Valley, Legacy Lane residents got active by playing a game of ball toss with noodles, and department leaders took Flyers and a heart-healthy nut mix out into the community to spread the word about Go Red Day!
RidgeWood Health Campus
The Legacy Neighborhood at RidgeWood went all out for Go Red Day! Residents and staff all wore red tie die t-shirts, made by the residents throughout the week. During the day, healthy snacks were made during cooking corner - the Fruit Smoothies were a hit!
Wellbrooke of Kokomo
At Kokomo, their dining rooms were decked out in red! Tables were draped in red tablecloths, and red heart balloons were as far as the eye could see. Fruits, veggies, and dark chocolate were readily available along with a special dark chocolate orange infused crème brûlée with fresh (red fruit) garnish.
Shelby Crossing Health Campus
Shelby Crossing went red in the traditional sense, but perhaps what was most impressive was the sentiment they shared about the day.
“There was not a lot of flash in our Wear Red Day celebration - of course there were red shirts, heart stickers and balloons; however, our focus was on content. We wanted to make a long-term difference in the lives of our patients as well as our employees. Our hope is that our residents and employees gained a new understanding of heart health and realized that healthy living does not mean an end to delicious meals and enjoyable activities.” – Susan Elamri, Rehab Assistant
Trilogy Health Services would like to thank all of our campuses for showing support for the American Heart Association on February 3rd.
We Heart You!
