Dec. 8, 2017—An article posted online Dec. 6 by the Boston Globe, quotes Dr. Atul Gawande, author of Being Mortal and an expert on end-of-life care, as calling the Vitalize 360 approach “transformative.”
Titled “By helping seniors set life goals, coaches motivate them to get stronger and live well,” the article notes that Vitalize 360 is a joint venture between and Kendal and Hebrew SeniorLife, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate. An innovative, person-directed approach to wellness coaching, Vitalize 360 leverages information derived from a scientifically-grounded assessment system to engage, challenge and inspire older adults.
Vitalize 360 recognizes that “even as you may have health issues and frailty and the difficulties that can come with aging . . . people have lives worth living. And in fact have a lot more life worth living,” Gawande says.
