SRI Management has been focused on the needs and the “wants” in senior living for more than two decades. During that time, we have not only come to recognize the services and attributes that drive demand and satisfaction levels, we have prioritized them and made them pillars of what we believe and stand for.
Nutrition, physical and social activity, and individualized care programs are known to add value and quality-of-life to elderly lives. The senior housing industry views these aspects in a functional capacity, providing them as “check boxes” in a list of needs in communities. SRI’s consumer research, however, has revealed these categories as areas of primary importance and opportunities for differentiation in the process of selecting a retirement lifestyle.
Seniors adamantly state that dining, not eating, is a social experience that they miss. We created Artful Dining® to address that #1 want, and as a way to differentiate the offering in an SRI-managed community. This same insight and process is what drove us to develop proprietary Zestful Activities® and Heartful Care® signature programming.
