GREENVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 16, 2011 – Sterling House Greenville, a Brookdale Senior Living assisted living community, recently introduced Innovative Senior Care (ISC) in the community to better serve the needs of its residents. ISC offers ancillary services including physical, occupational and speech therapies; specialized clinical programs designed for seniors; and health education programs.

Studies have shown residents of senior living communities who engage in a comprehensive health and wellness program, including rehabilitation, fitness and education, achieve a higher quality of life and maintain their independence longer. Integrating proactive and reactive services, Innovative Senior Care treats the effects of aging while educating residents about healthy aging.

To assist residents in maintaining and improving their independence, ISC offers health education and group exercise classes. In addition to traditional home health and therapy treatments, Innovative Senior Care offers rehabilitation massage therapy, chair yoga and Tai Chi.

As a component of ISC, Brookdale offers the Care3 Wellness program, a comprehensive nursing, therapy and wellness system. Care3 Wellness is comprised of three components: rehabilitation, fitness and education. Care3 Wellness supports the goals of Innovative Senior Care, helping residents learn about and treat the effects of aging.

“Introducing Innovative Senior Care at Sterling House Greenville will compliment our current offerings and amenities at the community,” said Bryan Davenport, executive director for Sterling House Greenville. “Through access to ISC’s full continuum of care within their community, our residents often receive a greater consistency of quality services.”

At Sterling House Greenville, employees pair with each resident to create a personalized plan addressing his or her individual needs. Brookdale Senior Living, parent company to Sterling House Greenville, offers a personalized approach to assisted living, focusing on listening to residents, recognizing essential services for residents and respecting individual preferences.
