Barrington, IL (PRWEB) December 18, 2009 -- The Garlands of Barrington, 1000 Garlands Lane, Barrington, IL, is the proud recipient of the International Council on Active Aging’s (ICAA) Innovator Award for The Garlands robust lifestyle program known as EngAGE by The Garlands. The ICAA Industry Innovator Award distinguishes The Garlands lifestyle among programs at continuing care retirement communities worldwide for excellence and creativity in health, wellness and active aging. This prestigious award honors cutting-edge physical activity and wellness programs that inspire new directions in older adult wellness and encourage healthier, more vital aging for 50-plus adults.

The ICAA award comes on the heels of The Garlands receiving national recognition from U.S. News and World Report for earning a perfect five-star rating from the federal government for quality care and previous recognition from the American Institute of Architects for innovation that illustrates the future of design as it relates to creating housing for the aging population. “It is a privilege to offer such award-winning in lifestyle programming, high quality caregiving and architectural excellence to area seniors and adult children who recommend The Garlands to their out-of-town parents,” said Thomas S. Herb, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barrington Venture Holding Company LLC, local owners and operators of The Garlands.

“The Garlands of Barrington provides an inspiring example for everyone striving to advance active aging,” says Colin Milner, ICAA’s founder and CEO. “Participating in the various aspects of The Garlands EngAGE program helps to enrich the lives of older adults and enhance their health, wellness and quality of life.”

The Garlands EngAGE lifestyle is founded on the belief that wellness is much more than the absence of disease. It’s a timeless, conscious approach toward creating a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit. The EngAGE lifestyle offers opportunities to participate in pursuits that are centered on the six dimensions of wellness: physical, vocational, social, intellectual, spiritual and emotional. Many studies show that, regardless of age, those who incorporate aspects of the six dimensions of wellness into their lifestyle, are found to be among the healthiest and happiest people.

Based on high participation levels and member survey results, The Garlands EngAGE lifestyle is contributing to a happier and healthier group of aging active adults here in Barrington. “The members ensure the success of our program and continuously provide input and support to make it better and better,” says Jill Lund, Director of Activities at The Garlands.

For members who choose to pursue an engaged retirement lifestyle, The Garlands robust calendar of activities and events provides endless possibilities. Fine resources such as a supportive staff and excellent amenities are readily available and convenient to members. The Garlands Fitness and Aquatic Center, The Garlands Lifelong Learning Center, The Garlands Art Studio and outdoor walking paths make it easier for folks to get in shape, make friends, study new topics and to find creative and spiritual outlets.

“I’m so thankful that I’m living at this wonderful place,” says Garlands member Bonnie Smith. “There are a variety of activities offered—at least eight or nine a day—that appeal to a wide range of tastes—from swimming to art classes,” adds Smith, who enjoys both. “There are many occasions to connect socially, like happy hours, chef dinners, concerts and book club, and also many opportunities to reach out to others through volunteerism and making personal connections. If you choose to do so, one can really enjoy a very fulfilling lifestyle here.”

The Garlands, located near the heart of Barrington, is a unique community for people ages 55 and older that provides residents an uncompromising lifestyle in a resort setting. For more information about EngAGE by The Garlands, please call 847-304-1996 or visit the website at www.TheGarlands.com.
