A thank you to our community members, associates and more for your efforts

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many new challenges to our community members, associates,
families and loved ones. As we continuously experienced ever-changing protocols, we, as a community,
did not lose hope. Together, we took every new turn and twist in stride, to ensure that our residents
continued to have the best senior living experience.

Our associates have done an incredible job easing fears about the virus and helping protect our
residents and their families. Not only did they continue to provide topnotch care, but they reimagined
what it means to work in the senior living care industry.

Now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, the team at ISL would like to thank you and
your families for your patience and for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself and those in
our community. Your efforts to get vaccinated and follow protocols will protect our vulnerable
populations as we move forward toward normalcy.

We have celebrated incredible occupancy growth across the ISL family, but we are not done yet. In the
past eight months, we’ve added 17 new communities to our portfolio, and we have many more planned
for 2021. ISL is stronger than ever, and our growth is a blessing compared to the last year and a half of
challenges we’ve faced.

Thank you to each and every one of you and your family members for your continuous dedication to ISL.
We are looking forward to watching our family of communities continue to grow as our associates and
caregivers work together to change lives and provide exceptional care.

Vibrant Life® Is Gearing up for Summer

Our signature Vibrant Life® program, available at each Integral Senior Living community, is designed to keep residents entertained, active and engaged. Whether you’re a social butterfly who loves a packed daily itinerary, a craft-lover who’s content to sit and scrapbook all day, or you want to enjoy a walk with friends, we have the amenities, staff and support system to tailor every day to exactly what you or your loved one wants. We believe that the key to living well is creating an environment where every individual is celebrated and encouraged to pursue the things that bring them joy, whether that’s old hobbies or new. With summer coming quickly, we’ve put together a list of our top tips to live vibrantly, even when Mother Nature cranks up the heat.

  • Stay hydrated! If you’re outside and basking in the sun, it’s important to replenish your fluids, especially if you’re also being active.
  • Don’t forget the SPF. UV rays can be vicious even on the cloudiest summer days.
  • Consider a sunhat or visor to protect your face and eyes. A little bit of shade goes a long way!
  • Take breaks. Especially in the afternoon, brief visits to areas with air conditioning will help you stay cool.

We are excited to help every ISL resident be the best version of themselves and lead vibrant, fulfilling lives, no matter the weather. Let our team show you how. Contact the Vibrant Life® director at your community today!
