CARLSBAD, CA –Integral Senior Living, a premier provider of senior living management services, has been named one of the nation’s 20 largest senior living providers in the 2018 ASHA 50.
Driven by growth from the launch of Solstice Senior Living in late 2017, Integral Senior Living (ISL) was listed by the American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA) as the 17th-largest provider of senior living communities (by unit) in the U.S., with 8,026 units in 80 properties. Prior to the Solstice launch in 2017, ASHA ranked ISL at 27th-largest in the U.S., with 5,170 units in 59 communities.

“We are one year into the launch of Solstice Senior Living, and we are loving the boost it has offered the Integral family,” said Collette Gray, CEO/COO of ISL and Solstice. “We have gotten to know new communities and are truly enjoying the process of sharing services and best practices between ISL and Solstice to benefit residents and associates in all of our communities.”
ISL and NorthStar Healthcare Income, Inc., (NHI) launched Solstice Senior Living in November of 2017 as a joint venture providing management and support services to 32 NHI-owned independent living communities.

Just as Solstice brought growth to ISL and best-practice sharing across communities, ISL brought new features to each Solstice community, including ISL’s trademark Vibrant Life™ activity program, as well as a newly developed culinary program, Elevate. Vibrant Life focuses on seven core components, ranging from inspiration and wellness to adventure and community connections. The program promotes joyful experiences, meaningful endeavors, and abundant opportunities to connect residents with family, friends and the local community.
Elevate provides Solstice residents with flexible and changing culinary options. Monthly “Food for Thought” meetings complement the program by engaging residents in culinary and menu-related decisions.
