2015 review

Over 2015, Wexner Heritage Village documented 602 Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program visits to patients, family members and staff. During the visits, levels of PANIC (Pain, Anxiety, Nausea, Insomnia, and Constipation) and Exhaustion were measured, along with Pain and Discomfort due to Chief Complaint. The study shows that patients who had UZIT sessions reported lower levels of pain, chief complaint, agitation & restlessness.

In 2013, Wexner Heritage Village became the first clinical setting in the Midwest to provide patients and their families Urban Zen Integrative Therapy. The program was initially introduced to Zusman Hospice patients, their families and caregivers. It is now being incorporated into care for those throughout the WHV campus, including the residents, their families and caregivers on long-term care units at Wexner Heritage House; Wexner Rehabilitation patients; at The Cottage, the residential unit for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia-related conditions; and at Creekside at the Village, their independent and assisted living facility.

Following are several documents that provide a detailed analysis and review of the real impact of Urban Zen Integrative Therapy at Wexner Heritage Village.
