    The primary role of a Resident Services Coordinator (RSC) is to effectively assist residents that have requested support in enhancing the quality of their daily lives. The RSC provides residents with information about and access to local services and resources that can assist them in pursuing opportunities and achieving life’s objectives and to live independently and safely as long as possible.  The RSC provides practical support for the Director of Community Life and the team, supporting the creation and implementation of programming throughout the Jack Satter House community.

     

    The Vitalize 360 Coach will embrace the senior coaching philosophy that empowers individuals to live a full and vibrant life. Through an engaging relationship between coach and resident, individuals are encouraged to live their best life.  The coach and resident establish a meaningful rapport through conversations built on trust, honesty and positive regard.  Through this collaboration, the coach supports the resident in dialogue toward the development of a fulfilling “Vitalize Plan”.  The plan includes goals which can incorporate the various dimensions of wellness including: physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual and social.

     

    The Vitalize 360 Coach provides senior coaching, with an emphasis on goal setting, communication and follow-up. The foundation of the Vitalize 360 Program is the Collage Assessment, a scientific and evidence based tool that assesses one’s wellness, health and quality of life including one’s physical capability, activities, and the social interests.  The Vitalize 360 Coach is supported by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals that meet and communicate with the coach on a regular basis.
