For more than a year, preventing Covid has been the focus of health care. But what does the future look like?
For most seniors, living well means much more than not being sick.
However, there is much more to wellness than physical health.
Total wellness looks at the whole person in seven areas: social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, environmental, and physical. *1
We break it down into three categories below.
Seniors take control of their own wellness while engaging in socially and intellectually stimulating activities.

2 SeniorLifestyle; “7 ways Senior Communities Promote health & Wellness “
3 ICAA Wellness Benchmark report
4 Health Sense: “6 ways one provider is redefining wellness in senior living”
InSite is always striving to design from the perspective of all residents- Jill may have taken it a bit too far.
Well, 2021 is off to an interesting start...
See how InSite Architects celebrated the holidays!
This Thanksgiving we are thankful for YOU. Our clients, our consultants, our partners, our colleagues, our loved ones, and our friends.
InSite Architects thanks every one of you and your families for your business, partnership, friendship, and camaraderie. Wishing you a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.
It's Take Your Dog to Work Day!!
Though working from home, that's most days now, isn't it?
We are equal opportunity employers - and pet lovers - so we're including our "real" dogs, as well as our "dogs for a day."
Are your pets as "helpful" as ours??
Pet pairings are named in the captions!
Broken - but “Architects believe we can change the world.” What comes next in the wake of all that has happened depends upon us shedding our cynicism and lifting up what we already know: that the best of the built environment, the best of any product, system, or community, has always been the result of deep collaboration; and that the more diverse, equitable and inclusive the collaboration, the more creative and lasting the solutions.”
Please see AIA Minnesota's statement:
At this time of uncertainty there are some things that are certain: we need to look out for each other. We can lean on each other (even with social distancing). We are stronger together.
One of InSite Architects’ core values is to not just work in communities, but to serve them. In looking for a way to give back we compiled a list of opportunities to help others. We share these with you in hopes that people can both get the help they need and find comfort in being able to help others during these uncertain times.
We believe making our communities better and igniting change goes beyond improving neighborhoods through great design. Together we can make a difference!
Opportunities to help others:
ON YOUR OWN
InSite Architects took an extra opportunity to embrace the holiday spirit this year – by participating in the Be A Santa to a Senior program.
