2023 Reflection on Word of the Year: Perseverance

Category: Senior Living

Author: Erin Winsted, Administrator/Preceptor

As we wrap up 2023, we find ourselves reflecting on months past and what lies ahead with our community’s journey. 

If you recall, our Personal and Professional Development Coach, Michael “Buck” Buckley. Challenged us to pick a “Word of the Year” in January 2023. Buck asked us to look inward and consider what we need more of or what might improve our lives. The time has come to revisit our Word of the Year for 2023 and explore its impact on The Madison Senior Living. Whether you’ve been an active member or are just joining us. This retrospective journey invites us all to celebrate the past year.

Our community Word of the Year for 2023 was ‘perseverance.’ The success of The Madison in 2023 was an increase in residents moving in and being served. We went from 89 residents in all three neighborhoods. Then in January 2023, 129 residents in the same three neighborhoods in December 2023.

This is a phenomenal growth of 28% over the past year. 

Our community truly lived the word ‘perseverance’ throughout the year by overcoming leadership changes and managing staffing challenges. Also, with increased residents to care for and support each other along with the residents and families that depend on us to provide support and care daily.

As The Madison Leadership Team moves forward into 2024, we are looking to continue census growth. We will continue melding and leaning on each other to improve processes. The standards that are key to the Arrow way. Our camaraderie and energy, present at the close of 2023, will only grow and flow into 2024. We move forward as a team dedicated to quality care, responsiveness, and accountability to each other. But most importantly, to the residents and families we serve.   

As we bid farewell to 2023, we will carry forward the essence of our Word of the Year into 2024. The successes and strides of our community, the embodiment of our chosen word in our collective actions, are not just markers in time but a testament to the strength of this community.

I look forward to catching our 2024 Word of the Year blog soon!
