UC San Diego and Belmont Village Senior Living Partner on the First-of-Its-Kind Living Lab

We are thrilled to announce a new, unique partnership with Belmont Village Senior Living in La Jolla, CA.

Belmont Village's collaboration with UCSD's Center for Healthy Aging began when we partnered in the first phase of “Raise Your Resilience” training, which yielded remarkable results as seen in the study entitled A pragmatic trial of a group intervention in senior housing communities to increase resilience, published online in International Psychogeriatrics. In that program, residents at Belmont Village Senior Living Cardiff by the Sea and Sabre Springs took part in a groundbreaking multi-site study that was proven to enhance resilience and reduce subjective stress for residents.

Now, the partnership has produced a new layer of collaboration to integrate the Stein Institute and the UC San Diego Center for Healthy Aging research and innovation to the residents of the newest Belmont Village community in La Jolla, CA, offering Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. The first-of-its-kind Living Lab featured in the La Jolla community is a physical space, manned by UC San Diego faculty and researchers, to deepen their connection with older adults. By being embedded in the community in a Living Lab, it will be easier for faculty and staff to launch initiatives to study health, well-being, and longevity.

We look forward to continuing to make great strides in senior health through the UCSD-Belmont Village partnership in this new endeavor and into the future.
