SPICES of Life
Baptist Homes Society’s Wellness Philosophy has an acronym–SPICES. Baptist Homes Society affirms the right of all individuals in our community to achieve their highest level of well-being in MIND, BODY and SPIRIT. We are committed to providing an environment that encourages and supports the components of wellness: Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Community, Emotional, and Social.
Hence the acronym, SPICES, and because these compenents add so much to our life, we call our wellness, the SPICES of Life. The individual Dimensions of Wellness can be explained as the following:
SPIRITUAL – to encourage an integration of one’s relationship with God and a sense of life purpose and satisfaction. To develop a strong sense of personal values and ethics and an appreciation for the depth and expanse of life and natural forces that exist in the universe.
PHYSICAL – to provide an environment that encourages and supports healthy behaviors and best practices of care, relative to one’s own abilities and disabilities.
INTELLECTUAL – to provide learning and mentally stimulating opportunities for continued growth and well-being. To think creatively and rationally through a variety of familiar and new resources and lifetime learning and other activities.
COMMUNITY – to promote ongoing positive interactions between Providence Point and the community at large.
EMOTIONAL – to achieve a sense of peace and acceptance within one’s self that calls forth the best of self. To account for personal expectations, and perspective. To manage stress, success, failure and grief.
SOCIAL – to encourage positive relationships and interactions that will add to the enjoyment of life and bring hope and joy. To feeling connected and value differences.
