Willamette View in Oak Grove is now a Blue Zones Project Approved Worksite that recognizes the senior living facility's efforts in proactively creating health and wellness programs and activities for its 290 employees.
Last week, Willamette View joined a small group that has attained this status, including Rose Villa Senior Living in Oak Grove and Natural Grocers in Clackamas.
An employee committee called FITcrew worked on and coordinated the process to receive Blue Zones Worksite approval status.
Blue Zones is a program of Healthways, a well-being improvement company. By bringing residents, worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores and government together, Healthways hopes the project will inspire a community movement that has the power to improve the quality of life for everyone.
