WHOLE LIFE LIVING philosophy.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 14.8 million Americans suffer from some type of major depressive
disorder and about 20.9 million American adults have a mood disorder. Couple depression and lack of physical activity together the senior’s ability to live
well is drastically reduced. You can’t live forever but you can live well, by making simple changes in your lifestyle. Grundstein, had a vision to re-invent
how Senior Living communities were built and operated. Grundstein a longtime advocate of living a healthy lifestyle began creating a very unique business
model to change the game for how seniors experienced transitions later in life.
TheWhole Life Living business model is unique to operated/owned GenCare senior communities, and is based on four fundamental programs: Whole Life Dining™; Vitality and Stay Sharp Centers™; and Living Life with Purpose.All components which research has consistently proven will deliver great quality of life, no matter what age.“Motivating individuals to live well is something we take very seriously,” says Leon Grundstein, CEO and Founder of GenCare Lifestyle,“Although it can be challenging at times, the feedback from residents is thatthey have so much more energy.’ Those who have embraced the Whole Life Living philosophy feel much better, and it shows to them and their families.”
