Our Pillars

Five Star Senior Living distinguishes themselves through four key areas: Health & Wellness, Warmth & Hospitality, Dining & Nutrition, and Talent & Development. These pillars represent our promise to both the residents and team members at Five Star.
  • Health & Wellness »
    Five Star Health and Wellness represents the richness of our wellness programming as well as the quality of our skilled health care, including our industry- leading memory and Alzheimer’s care.

    Five Star Health & Wellness also includes our innovative Lifestyle360 program - a holistic approach to active senior living that focuses on five dimensions of wellness: Based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory about how individuals work toward self-actualization – or becoming one’s “best” self - Lifestyle360 seeks to redefine how we look at our residents' health, personalizing each of their journeys to wellness according to their individual needs.
  • Warmth & Hospitality »
    Warmth & Hospitality symbolizes the welcoming environment we strive to provide each of our residents and their families. Five Star Senior Living is in the hospitality business.

    You can expect to find warm and comfortable accommodations in each of our unique communities across the country. Moments of surprise and delight abound and add to the quality of life of the seniors and families we're proud to serve.
  • Dining & Nutrition »
    Dining and nutrition reflects the exceptional dining experience we consistently provide, serving meals that are not only delicious and varied, but also healthy and nutritionally optimized for the needs of our residents.

    You've probably seen our executive chef Brad Miller on the Food Network or maybe even dined at one of his acclaimed Southern California restaurants.

    These days you're just as likely to find him in the Five Star development kitchen working with our community chefs to create new signature recipes, perfect regional menus and dream up innovative ways to redefine senior dining.

    Brad and his chefs are passionate about one thing: raising the bar for our residents with quality local ingredients, distinctive flavors and exciting recipes that are healthy, delicious and fun.
  • Talent & Development »
    Our newest pillar, created for the dedicated, passionate and hard-working team members, who make our residences' experience a true Five Star experience every day. We invest in our most important asset - people.

    We are dedicated to providing the learning platform and resources so that our team members develop the necessary skills and have access to the knowledge to excel and grow their careers.
