Nustep and ICAa establish the beacon award

NuStep Partners With International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) to Create a "Best in Wellness" Award for Senior Communities NuStep and the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) have long shared a similar mission to support and advance whole-person wellness for older adults with their respective awards, the NuStep Pinnacle Award (see past Pinnacle winners below) and the ICAA Innovator's Award. In the years since ICAA and NuStep launched their award programs, the concept of wellness in senior community and senior center settings has evolved from a "nice to have" to a "must have." No longer a concept or just a program in a room, wellness is recognized as an essential way of life. In 2018, with an eye toward the future, ICAA and NuStep retired their awards and began working together to create a new, joint award, still focused on wellness, but taking it to a broader scale. The result is the ICAA NuStep Beacon Award. The Beacon recognizes the Top 25 senior communities that foster environments that embrace wellness as a way of life for all who live and work in the community. Using the seven dimensions of wellness as a foundation, these communities partner with residents and staff to create relevant, meaningful opportunities that empower participants to improve their quality of life.
