Arrow Senior Living Spreads the Word of the Year

Category: Senior Living

Author: Michael Buckley, Arrow Personal and Professional Development Coach

Every year around this time, I ask everyone at Arrow Senior Living to pick a “Word of the Year.” The goal is to look inward and consider what we each need more of and what might improve our lives. Sometimes we need more focus or clarity. Sometimes we need more compassion. Sometimes we just need more fun!

Examples of words individuals have chosen in the past include clarity, confidence, intentional, commitment, consideration, and receptiveness.

My word of 2022 was present. I love that word. I was deeply committed to that word in 2022 and being present positively impacted my life in every way.

Looking forward to 2023, Arrow Senior Living is not only asking the management staff to come up with words for themselves, but they are also asking them to come up with words for their senior living communities. Picking a word for both them and their community is a commitment to doing work on themselves individually and the “we” and “us” work we want to do as a community.

What is YOUR WORD? I hope you will pick one too. What is your life missing heading into 2023? What does “future you” thank you for working on now? Our words are meant to inspire us. If it is not inspiring, it’s not the right word.

And if you are reading this, please hold us accountable. When you visit any of our Arrow Senior Living communities or come to town hall, ask us what our word of the year is and what have we done to support it.

Please look forward to the December 2023 blogs where we tell you all the ways we lived in line with our word of the year and all the ways it helped improve our communities.

Saint Charles, Missouri-based Arrow Senior Living manages a portfolio of communities that offer varying levels of care, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care. Each and every senior living community supports residents by focusing on dignity, respect, and quality of life.
