Here, wellness isn’t a program – it’s a philosophy.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, wellness follows. The Homestead at Hamilton wellness philosophy is a way of life that ensures your mind and body stay healthy and active.
This philosophy, called Salus™ by Solvere, is powered by Masterpiece Living®, a holistic wellness platform on which all programming for our independent living, assisted living and memory care community is based. Designed to enhance and customize the community-wide successful aging initiative, Masterpiece Living is based on twelve years of research and the studies outlined in the book, Live Long, Die Short: A Guide to Authentic Health and Successful Aging, and Dr. Robert L. Kahn, one of the authors, is on the program’s advisory board.

SALUS (SAL-us), noun. Latin for “well-being.”
Salus is our trademark wellness philosophy that focuses on your potential to achieve your personal goals through engagement and connection. In addition to the services and amenities of the community, the Salus philosophy is integrated throughout Homestead at Hamilton. You’ll find no shortage of classes and events, programs and ways to connect with others to sustain or improve your health and well-being. You, your family and the Homestead team are encouraged to use your unique talents and their professional skills through our signature Salus programs.
FOUR COMPONENTS OF WELLNESS
Salus takes a comprehensive approach that concentrates on the Four Components of Wellness, each one a critical element for creating a path to meaningful living.
1. Physical: Living a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and proper nutrition as a means to stay strong, flexible and limit disease and disability.
2. Social: Strengthening existing connections with family and friends and developing new relationships to stay connected to the community.
3. Intellectual: Stimulating minds through participation in lifelong learning initiatives and challenging, creative programs.
4. Spiritual: Continuing lifelong search for purpose and meaning through faith-based involvement, volunteerism and service and enjoying meaningful pastimes.
To age successfully requires a physically active and mentally stimulating lifestyle, strong social engagement, an environment that supports your unique goals and — perhaps most importantly — a sense of purpose and meaning. Salus, powered by Masterpiece Living, equips you with the tools you need to meet these goals.
