Every ISL community takes pride in creating a lifestyle and support system tailored to each individual resident. After all, we like getting to know what makes our community members unique! To help support that goal, we offer lifestyle programs with three tiers of support.

Independent Living

If it’s a breeze for you to manage activities of daily living on your own but you’re looking for a shortened to-do list, independent living may be for you. It offers a vibrant environment, free from the normal chores and burdens of owning or renting a home. With us, you can remain independent, yet enjoy the conveniences that make life easier and more pleasant. Planned activities, group outings and delicious chef-prepared meals are just a few of the perks you can experience in our independent living communities.  

Assisted Living

Our Assisted Living program is designed to help our residents feel safe and right at home with helping hands available 24/7. We provide personalized care when needed, so our residents can focus on connecting with the people and community around them while maintaining their independence. We are there when you need them, and out of the way when you don’t. 

Memory Care

We provide a community for our residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our highly trained staff works with our residents on a daily basis to support them through their memory loss. We believe in providing special support for those living with memory loss. Our team works closely with our residents to monitor their health, safety and well-being. We get to know the whole person so we can ensure that we promote purposeful activities to suit their individual needs.

Our service lines are designed with you in mind, and with flexibility at their core. No matter what kind of support you or your loved one is seeking, the perfect fit is just a phone call away. Give your local ISL community a call today!

National Arthritis Awareness Month

 Spring is setting in after a much longer than usual winter. While most people take advantage of the nicer weather to get outside and be active, some experience lingering, unexplained pain. It is easy for anyone to think pain is due to the aging process, but sometimes it can be attributed to arthritis. May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, so we want to take this opportunity to talk a little more about how to protect your joints.

Though we’ve probably all heard of arthritis, many don’t know exactly what it is. Arthritis is not a single disease, but instead refers to joint pain or disease. In fact, there are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.

Arthritis can cause stiffness, swelling and severe joint pain, and lead to a loss of motion and mobility. Many people also don’t realize just how many Americans live with arthritis. It’s a condition that affects about one in four adults overall, and is the nation’s No. 1 cause of disability. That’s equates to over 54 million men and women.

Though you can’t always prevent arthritis, there are some things you can do to reduce the risk of getting painful joints as you age.

  • Exercise and keep a healthy weight – Obesity causes unnecessary stress on joints. You should stay active and make sure you are taking care of your body. According to the Johns Hopkins Arthritis Center, being just 10 pounds overweight means the force on your knees increases by 30 to 60 pounds when walking.
  • Eat fish – Fish can be rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have a number of health benefits, including reducing inflammation in the body.
  • Be mindful of your joints – Work to protect your joints from injury. Lift with your knees and hips when picking up objects; don’t use your back. If you sit for long periods at work or home, make sure that your back, legs and arms are well-supported.
  • See your doctor – As with most diseases and conditions, identifying them early on can be key to getting treatment that can slow the progress of arthritis and preserve mobility.

At ISL communities, we make sure all of our residents are staying active, eating high-quality food, and living fulfilling lives that promote mental and physical health.

 

Loma Clara Senior Living to Complete Construction in 2019

Residents scheduled to move in shortly after

MORGAN HILL, Calif. (March 29, 2018) – Construction has begun on Loma Clara Senior Living, a new assisted living community in Morgan Hill that will be managed by Integral Senior Living. SBI Builders broke ground in October 2017 and expects construction to be completed in early 2019, with available move-in starting soon after.

The two-story, Craftsman-style building designed by HPI Architecture will consist of 67 resident units, 25 of which will be specifically for residents with memory care needs, and will include a mix of studio, one-bedroom and shared suites. The 42 assisted living units will consist of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. The community has been designed around Loma Clara’s core belief that the challenging conditions of an aging brain should be met with a caring, interactive environment.

“Loma Clara will be a wonderful place for residents to be supported and cared for,” said executive director Tim Batton. “Construction has been going great so far, and we are excited to be working with HPI Architecture and Partners in Design.”

The community will have many recreational activities, ranging from entertainment to enrichment. Amenities will include large common areas, lounges, bistro, spa, beauty salon, fine dining, fitness center, movie theater, game room, computer lab and library. Residents will also enjoy an enclosed courtyard with fireplace, dog park, outdoor fountain, barbecue grill, putting green, gardens and walking paths. The interior outdoor courtyard will feature exterior lifestyle spaces with gardens, pathways, putting greens and other outdoor amenities.

Loma Clara will feature the Vibrant Life® activity program, an innovative approach designed for enhancing residents’ lives with components for well-rounded and meaningful experiences, an enhanced dining program that goes beyond the industry’s traditional culinary experience, and the Generations Memory Support Program that focuses on a person-centered culture.

“Integral Senior Living is happy to welcome Loma Clara into our family of excellent senior living communities,” said Collette Valentine-Gray, Integral Senior Living’s CEO and COO. “The thoughtful design of this community is taking every resident need into consideration, and that is our number one priority.”

The showroom will be opening in early April 2018. Pre-leasing deposits are currently being accepted. For more information, call (669) 258-3500.

Don’t Let Allergies Ruin Your Spring

Spring is here! Flowers are blooming, the sun is out, and the snow is gone. People are spending more time outside and enjoying nature. However, the change in seasons also brings along the boogie man of spring: allergies.

Dealing with allergies can be frustrating, but you can take steps to make sure they don’t ruin your spring.

No matter if you’ve been dealing with allergies your whole life or you’re feeling the symptoms for the first time, doing the following can help you get through the season with as little sneezing as possible!

  • Wash your hands frequently, and especially after being outdoors. If you’ve been outside for a long time, taking a shower will help wash any allergens away and prevent you from spreading them around your home.
  • Wear sunglasses when you’re enjoying everything nature has to offer. Sunglasses provide protection against irritants.
  • Make sure you’re checking the pollen levels in your area daily. You should try to plan your outdoor activities for when the pollen count is lowest.
  • It’s not the most fun way to experience the season; but you should avoid opening your windows as much as possible, as it will increase the amount of allergens entering your home or vehicle.
  • Make sure you eat foods that are known to fight inflammation. Foods that can help combat allergy symptoms include apples, flax seed, ginger, leafy greens, walnuts and anything high in vitamin C.
  • Talk to your doctor. There are a variety of prescription and over-the-counter medications that could help bring you some much-needed relief.

At all ISL communities, we emphasize an adventurous lifestyle that gets residents outdoors and enjoying all that life has to offer. Itchy eyes and sore throats shouldn’t stand in the way of a beautiful hike or day at the park!
