Finding quality care for your loved one is a great gift all year-round

One of the best gifts to consider this holiday season is the gift of quality care for your loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. At Integral Senior Living, we aim to provide this quality care through myriad programs. But one that holds a special place in our hearts is our Generations Memory Care program. 

Generations was built around research-based programming and is specially designed to ensure comfort and security while providing around-the-clock care, community support groups and so much more. Each person deserves the best care, and supporting individuals living with dementia is what we do with love and passion!  

We believe wholeheartedly that each of our residents is the person they were and still are, and not identified by their disease or behaviors. So, at all times, we strive to celebrate and highlight the abilities of those we serve. There’s also the most important thing: care. By requiring all of ISL’s care partners to complete extensive training when hired and continue ongoing education sessions, each person is able to better support our resident individuals living with memory loss. This support includes doing the “little things” that are so important for our residents’ well-being. It means taking the time to learn about your loved one’s past experiences, favorite activities and daily routine. This enables us to encourage independence, support the resident’s strengths and capabilities, and assist them with their needs in a loving and dignified manner.  

With specially designed and dedicated Alzheimer’s and memory care accommodations, Integral Senior Living ensures the comfort and security of your loved one. Our on-site resident care professionals are always here to oversee the administration of medications, as well as other basic care needs. 

While this joyful season comes only once a year, our doors are open year-round. We cannot think of a better holiday gift than finding a loving and supportive home for your loved one, and we’d love to show you why ISL can be that home you’ve been searching for. Contact a memory care community near you to take a tour and learn how we can be the best support for your loved one.

CARLSBAD, Calif. Integral Senior Living (ISL), a premier senior living management company, has partnered with 4MOM to help their mission of uniting communities in the fight for the world’s first survivor of Alzheimer’s disease.

The diagnosis of Suzy Bishop, a past ISL resident at WindChime of Marin Senior Living with early onset Alzheimer’s, prompted Braden Bishop to start the 4MOM charity. The organization unites professional athletes, coaches, patients, caregivers and their communities in the fight for the world’s first survivor of Alzheimer’s by advancing awareness, supporting caregivers and funding research. In support of their partnership with the charity, ISL held events at almost 50 of their managed communities across the country to fundraise for the cause.

The recent fundraiser provided activities, games and prizes to ISL communities, and so far, Integral Senior Living has raised $19,503 to support 4MOM and Alzheimer’s care.  The fundraiser and partnership was part of ISL’s Inspire program, the company’s charitable arm, which works with local communities and non-profits to put on events and fundraise for various causes.

“The culture at ISL is something very special and near and dear to all of our hearts,” said Collette Gray, president and CEO of ISL. “It is amazing to see our residents and associates come together with 4MOM to support efforts in the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s.”

Integral Senior Living names two new regional VPs of sales and marketing

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2021) Integral Senior Living (ISL), a premier senior living management company, has promoted Heather Haley and Tina Schachter to the role of Regional Vice Presidents of Sales and Marketing. 

Haley joined ISL in 2016 and brought with her over 18 years of experience in health care marketing and sales. She began her work at ISL as a Director of Sales and Marketing (DSM) before being promoted to Senior Director of Sales and Marketing in 2020. Her success with ISL started at the opening and leasing of The Pointe at Lifespring in Knoxville, Tenn., where she helped the community achieve 50% occupancy in just two months.

In her new role, Haley will manage ISL’s customer relationship management tools and other vendor relationships. She will also lead the company’s social media and branding efforts, as well as oversee the marketing goals and strategies of communities in Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah and Georgia. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in public relations from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and considers the senior living industry more a calling than a career.

Schachter joined ISL in 2019 after 20 years of experience in both hospitality and senior living. She started at ISL as a Regional DSM and was soon promoted to a senior position at the company and will now serve as Regional Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Schachter has accomplished many goals throughout her career, including becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Board-Certified Patient Advocate, and even has passed the Illinois Real Estate Exam.

In her new role, Schachter will lead and train community teams from across the country in the ISL Way of Sales, as well as being the point person for the planning and execution of large-scale events held at ISL communities. She graduated from Barat College in Lake Forest, Ill., with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business management. Now in her new role, she enjoys training and supporting her sales teams all while using her favorite ISL Culture Keeper, “work smarter, not harder.”

“Heather and Tina have shown exemplary leadership skills since they joined ISL, so we’re very fortunate to have them continue to make their mark on the company,” said Collette Gray, Integral Senior Living’s President and CEO. “Each of these women helps us maintain and grow the culture that makes ISL special to our associates and residents, and I have no doubt that they will continue to do so in their new roles.”

Over the past 15 months, both of these women have led community teams to achieve the highest occupancy in their history, with some even hitting 100%. They’ve also increased occupancy, revenue and net operating income in their regions.
