We are thrilled that he has joined our team.”
“Solstice is an innovative leader within the senior living industry,” Lors said. “I’m excited to share the Solstice approach with prospective residents and help more seniors live vibrantly.”
Activity and culinary offerings are widely recognized as key factors in seniors’ selection of an independent living community, and Solstice’s approach to providing these services exemplifies the venture’s plans to combine management best practices with purposeful resident engagement to support community utilization and retention.
Vibrant Life focuses on seven core components, ranging from inspiration and wellness to adventure and community connections. The program promotes joyful experiences, meaningful endeavors, and abundant opportunities to connect residents with family, friends and the local community.
Elevate provides Solstice residents with flexible and changing culinary options. The new program will be complemented by monthly “Food for Thought” meetings, which have succeeded at other ISL communities in engaging residents in culinary and menu-related decisions.
