Three NLCS Communities Receive Healthy Living Award

Our mission at National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) is about caring for seniors, and one of the most important ways we do this is by providing healthy communities where older adults can thrive. That’s why we are so honored that three of our communities were recently recognized by Senior Hospitality International for offering Retirement Living at its Healthiest®.

“A healthy lifestyle is one of the most invaluable aspects of living in a retirement community,” said Larry Bradshaw, CEO and President of NLCS. “We are so proud that The Village at Rockville, The Village at Orchard Ridge and The Village at Providence Point have been recognized for providing healthy lifestyles and healthy environments for older adults. We are excited to be among this select group.”

In addition to this award, Senior Hospitality International has certified Rockville and Orchard Ridge as Retirement Resorts, one of the most exciting designations in our industry. Providence Point has been pre-certified as a future community.

A Relentless Focus on Health

Senior Hospitality International was founded in 1999 to help guide older adults to communities that offer Retirement Living at its Healthiest®. Communities that receive this award have demonstrated a commitment to providing residents comprehensively healthy lifestyle options:

  • Healthy Campus Amenities (Facilities, Staffing & Programming)
  • Healthy Resident Activities (for Body, Mind, Soul & Spirit)
  • Healthy Community Engagement (Resident Clubs & Groups)

“The National Lutheran Communities offer an impressive array of healthy lifestyle options for residents to enjoy,” said J. Keesey Hayward of Senior Hospitality International. “Management and staff are relentlessly focused on helping their residents enjoy the many Dimensions of Healthy Living: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Nutritional, Spiritual, Cultural, and Vocational.”

Retirement Resorts Offer a Paradigm Shift

Communities recognized as Retirement Resorts represent the paradigm shifts changing the focus and nature of the Senior Hospitality industry in recent years:

  • A shift from “Caring for the Elderly” to “Serving Seniors”
  • A shift from “Getting Well” (cure) to “Staying Healthy” (prevention)
  • A shift from “Institutionality” to “Hospitality”

All Retirement Resorts offer an Independent Living, and many offer additional health care services. Rockville, Orchard Ridge and Providence Point all provide Assisted Living, Memory Care and Long-Term Care.

“What sets us apart is our mission of service,” said Bradshaw. “When older Americans join the National Lutheran family, our friendly team members get to know them personally so we can provide the lifestyle they’ve been looking for with a focus on wellness in all its dimensions.”
